This is the first sweater I have ever made!  I started the sweater in October and just finished it in June.  I'm so excited and proud to have completed this project as many times I start things but don't finish them.  Just wanted to share!

Hi Lori,

This is such a beautiful sweater.  Congratulations on finishing it and doing such a great job.  When I read that it took you 8 months to complete, that made me feel like maybe I can do something like this.  I've never done fair isle knitting yet, but I want to start a project now because I've always loved the fair isle designs.   I bet you could've finished this sooner, but I'm sure you didn't spend 24 hrs. a day knitting it.

I'm wondering, how long you've been knitting, and how did you learn this technique?  Did you learn from videos or did you take a class?  Or, maybe someone showed you.  At any rate, congrats again and hopefully I can knit something as beautiful as this.
