Ta-dah!!!

I am so freaking proud of myself! I actually knit a sweater. And it actually resembles something someone would put on their child. I couldn't have done it without www.knittinghelp.com, where I learned how to make increases and decipher the pattern. It didn't take me too long either, about a few days working on it a few hours a day. I made it with Caron Simply Soft that I had in my stash and some scrap Red Heart for the stripes. I am a beginner that has only recently graduated from scarves, so I think those more experienced knitters could bang it out pretty fast. Oh and here is the 5 hour baby sweater pattern for a boy. The original pattern is a little more girly.
