My First Sweater!

seamless raglan FO

SQUEEEE!!!!! I'm so proud of the new addition to my wardrobe <3333

Pattern Particulars

Pattern Source: Seamless Raglan from Knitting Without Tears by Elizabeth Zimmermann

Needles: Clover Takumi 32" Circulars US sz. 8, Addi Natura 16" circulars US sz. 8

Materials: 5 skeins of Malabrigo Worsted Merino in Lettuce (from Misocrafty's de-stash) and one in Glazed Carrot (from Webs).

Time: I didn't actually time this project but I did start it in June.

Loved: the ease of the pattern and the perfect fit. Because EZ pretty much forces you to pay attention to the gauge, you shouldn't expect anything less.

Hated: nothing. I want to knit like, 300 sweaters now.

<333!
Great sweater. I'm afraid to make clothing. If it didn't fit me I'd probably cry.
Congratulations, though, it's fantastic looking on you!
