I finished my first sweater, and here it is!
The yarn is 100% rayon “Rickrack” by Interlacements. The yarn knits up beautifully, without any big, blotchy pooling of colors.
I am very pleased with how the sweater turned out. The colors remind me of Ireland. Now I just have to wait for the weather to cool off so I can wear it. Meanwhile, I ordered yarn for the next sweater, a V-neck pullover. I think I am definitely hooked on knitting.
