Sweater Knitting

I am very excited to show you my first ever handknit sweater! Well, the start of it. A couple of my work friends and myself signed up for a beginner's sweater knitting class at our local yarn shop, Fiber Arts Cafe. I use "local" loosely in this context. I live about 20 minutes from this shop and one of my work friends lives about 45 minutes away. We decided to go to this shop because it is a hop, skip and a jump from our work.

For my sweater I choose a green yarn that has flecks of blue. The yarn is made by Plymouth Yarn. It is their Encore Chunky. I am using US size 10 circular needles. I casted on the neck with a 16" cable and proceeded to a 29" needle.

The pattern is "The Incredible, Custom-fit Raglan Sweater. You can keep up with the progress of my sweater by visiting my Ravelry page: PamieA on Ravelry
