I finished the sweater at last. I sewed up the seams on the arms and went to put the zipper on only to realize that I didn't get the right zipper. I was too preoccupied with selecting the right color and length that I neglected to select a coat zipper. I live out of town so I won't get to the city today but I will get one next time.
I am not too pleased with the outcome. I made one error. One. And wouldn't you know it, it is on the front chest part. Figures. Also I think the sleeves could have been a little more loose. The neck seems too high and a bit small.
I loved the ease of the pattern though and I will make this one again. I'll just not decrease so much on the sleeve and I'll use bigger needles for a more relaxed fit. It is plenty long enough and there is a lot of stretch too it.
All in all, it turned out just okay for me. It was my first attempt at a sweater but definitely won't be my last.
