Raven V-Neck FO
Inspired by Cynar's fierce crafting confidence, I brashly dove into a full-on sweater project without any circular knitting experience at all. I expected a mess, so I chose an inexpensive yarn, not wanting to invest in high end fiber for a garment that will never leave my house. In truth, I really don't love this yarn, but it seems comfy and will be great for working out in the yard in the spring and fall months.
Pattern: Easy Raglan V-Neck by Stephanie Japel
Yarn: Big Twist Premium in Raven from JoAnn's
Notes: This seemed like a fairly straight-forward basic sweater pattern. I was a bit confused by some of the sleeve directions, but I couldn't find any notes about it online, so maybe it was just my newbie ignorance. I am not a huge fan of the ribbing (especially the knitting of ribbing on little sleeve ends) so I would shorten the ribbing sections if there is a second iteration. Also, it is a little long for me in the torso, so I would need to leave off a little there. All things considered, it's a decent pattern with a lot of potential.
All in all, I am glad I did it and am glad it is finished!
