I've finally finished my first sweater. After many false starts and attempts on various sweaters, it is Coraline who earned the honor of first completed sweater. Or, cardigan, should you prefer. 

I don't usually wear very many pullovers - I prefer cardigans, since they're more versatile - and I can tell already that once blocked and washed, this cardigan will be one of my favorites. It's made with Malabrigo Silky Merino, a dk-weight yarn that comes in a brilliant array of colors. This colorway is called 'Sand', but I personally think that it looks like spun gold, and it certainly felt like something luxurious, slipping through my hands while I knitted. 

A modeled photo should be coming soon! The weather has been rainy today and Coraline has not been blocked.
