Finished objects: My first knitted sweater

So excited! Today I have a guest blog post up on Fringe Association, where I share a little about my journey as a knitter and how it brought me to knit my first sweater. I adore Karen and am so honored she asked. I hope it helps inspire others as well.

Here are a few photos of my first adult sized sweater, knit just for me. I couldn’t be more thrilled with the result. <3

    Gorgeous sweater! I love the edge detailing and the buttons! I still have never knitted a sweater; it intimidates me..

      Thank you! I totally hear you about the intimidation factor, though this has given me a completely new bout of confidence. Hope you take the leap, you won’t regret it! 🙂
