I started my hourglass sweater back in May and finally finished it last week! I have to say, I'm pretty pleased with the results. I've already worn it three times. This was my first sweater, and although I did have some problems reading the instructions (just because I wasn't familiar with the techniques), once I dove right in, it all actually made sense. I've already started my second sweater.
I wrote about my progress on my blog.
Thanks to everyone here for the support!
