My First Sweater!

I have been wanting to knit a sweater for a long time now but was intimidated by the "complexity" of the patterns and measurements (yeah, you probably know by now that I really suck big time in anything that has to do with calculations...). After some consideration, I finally pluck up courage to attempt to knit my first sweater - a Pippi Långström (Pippi Longstocking) inspired sweater for my prince number 3.  The pattern was adapted from here (you'll need a Ravelry account to log in), except that I up-sized it to fit my 4-year old.

And I think it turned out quite alright! The yarn I used was Fuga and it felt kinda prickly when I was knitting, but after washed and blocked, it is no longer prickly and surprisingly kinda soft.

Now I can't wait to try more sweaters with different details!
