Finished Sweater for Meghan

I finished the Silken Straw Sweater for Meghan and I am very happy with the results.  She was thrilled and it fit her perfectly.  This was such an easy pattern to follow and I highly recommend it to anyone.  I did go to my LYS and get some help with the i-cord finish and am very happy with the results.

Summer Sweater for My Daughter

I have started my first sweater and I am knitting it for my daughter Meghan.  I have chosen a pattern from Purl Bee and I can't wait to see how it turns out.  The pattern is Silken Straw Sweater:

I have chosen to knit it in Classic Elite Firefly yarn in the color sour apple.

My daughter is a blond with hazel eyes and I think the bright green will look great on her.  I cast on last night and only have about 5 rows done.  I will keep you up to date on my progress!

This is a great tutorial for adding beads to knitting!  Funny how some things seem to be so complicated and then you happen upon something that makes the light bulb turn on!
