The grey sweater is done!

So, this is the completion of my first adult sweater. I am 90 % happy with it. It is the wishbone sweater from Elizabeth Zimmerman's "Knitter's Almanac". I feel like the hems are a bit clumsy and the color might not wind up being so great on me BUT it is my first sweater and that is an accomplishment in and of itself. It also has been in my knitting basket for about 2 years! It will give me the courage to do other sweaters in the future.

Other things on the needles....I need to finish that pirate doll for Hailey. I am not enjoying it entirely, mostly because crocheting still feels clumsy to me and I also dislike the parts where I need to split the cheap acrylic yarn into 2 ply instead of 4 ply, but it's been promised, so on I go. I'll post some pictures of my progress soon....
