rastafarian sweater

As some of you know - I took up knitting a few weeks ago...I figured I would make a Christmas stocking for Astrid and call it good. Well, I'm afraid I have stumbled upon something that is here to stay... I can't see an end to the project ideas I have in my mind...

I have a sweater that I have been working on for Astrid, but I ran out of the black yarn - so it is missing a sleeve (and I can't wait for the yarn store to open so I can finish it!)...I'm SURE you will be seeing more pics of her in it when I'm done.  When I first started knitting the sweater I wasn't sure about my choice of black...and I had a sinking feeling that I wouldn't like the end result...but once I started knitting the stripes a colorful rastafarian sweater appeared!

With a little help from Lisa & Sharon in a couple of tricky spots I had very little trouble.  It was a remarkably easy knit for a beginner.  I'm very anxious to hear what my sis-in-law Katie thinks!  She started knitting a couple years ago and has been knitting like crazy ever since!  These knitters in my life have been quite an inspiration to me!

Love this!!! Send me the pattern please. I'm working on a Piquot edge sweater for Ellie like the one I made Astrid only it is dark green. You are a fast learner for sure. Keep up the good work.
