Sweatery goodness!

Yay! I have successfully completed my first sweater! Its the Ballet Wrap from the Winter 06 IK. I'm pretty proud. AND I think that I will actually wear it in public! Too bad that its already 75 here. Not much need for sweaters at this point.

Its hard to get a good pic with the dark color, so I'll try again tomorrow, but for now...

I knit it in KnitPicks Decadence in Chocolate...gauge was a little off, but ended up working out great!

And I also am working on Spherey from Unusual Toys...its for my nephew's first b-day! so flippin cute. Just needs his arms and legs.

Your sweater is gorgeous! Much, much nicer than the one in the magazine. Yours inspires me to give the pattern another look. And I love the color you chose, so warm and cozy.

I really like this wrap sweater you knitted! What do you think of KnitPicks decandance yarn? The color is nice too.
