I haven't finished my first sweater yet. It's almost done. I just have to finish seaming and then weave in all the ends. Can I just say that I hate weaving in ends? It's so freaking tedious. But I'm really excited to see it all come together. I'll probably finish it this week and have pictures to show sometime next week.
The photos I posted above have nothing to do with the sweater I'm finishing. Rather they are for my next sweater project. I'm obsessing about sweaters over here because it's getting so cold outside! The ground is covered in snow, and I'm loving it. The reason I'm starting on a new project already is that my awesome sister got me this for Christmas and is anxious to see me get going. I picked out the pattern and yarn, and they arrived today in the mail. I chose the Kaari pullover to make after seeing it on one of my most favorite blogs in the whole world. I'm sticking to the very same yarn and color shown on the model because it's so beautiful. Being such a novice, I'm not going to switch up yarns and get all creative. Maybe when I get better. Before I showed Mindy the yarn I wanted, she said, "Let me guess. You want GRAY yarn. Again." She knows me too well. The book I got is full of other beautiful patterns too, like this one and this one.
