After three months (including a few weeks of rest for my poor abused wrists), I have finally finished my first knitted sweater! I decided on a boyfriend-style cardigan with pockets and seven metal buttons, which I purchased at a trim store a block from my office. It's wonderfully convenient to work in the Garment District!
Not the best photo for sure (hey there, iPhone in the upper right corner!), but it will work for now!
