A New Sweater

I've been working on this sweater for a few weeks now, knitting almost every evening for a couple of hours.  The yarn is a fabulous blend of wool and silk.  At first, the randomly spaced little white nubs annoyed me, but now I like the way they look.

Against the advice of Roberta, good friend and owner of the local yarn shop, I followed the directions for a size XL.  It's huge.  I should have made it in size Large, as Roberta suggested.  The good news is that I like the way it looks with a cotton turtle neck underneath and I really don't even need a coat to go outside!


Now, I've started to knit my first pair of socks!
