knit / classic raglan sweater

Last week, I finished by biggest knitting project to date - my first sweater!! I'm so excited about how it turned out - it actually fits me, it's cozy and warm and I got to use yarn that came from my Grandma who was a crazy good knitter.






























I used Jane Richmond's Ladies Classic Raglan Sweater pattern - it was perfect for my first sweater and I highly recommend it.  It's really well written, you fill in the pattern with your own number of increases and decreases based on your measurements so it's a custom fit.


This sweater makes me a little less sad about that long cold season that comes after fall.  I'm already looking forward to knitting another version of this pattern!
