Third time is a charm

I have started knitting Flair, and I am feeling pretty good about this one. After the first two knits for me, did not work out, I was feeling pretty frustrated.


So far, so good. This is a double breasted sweater, which I love, but I wanted to cut down on some of the bulk in the front, so I am knitting a small. I pinned some buttons in so you can get the idea. I am just using two buttons for the body, instead of the recommended four, and one for the collar. I am at the point where you are supposed to change over to seed stitch for the bottom, but I am going to make mine a bit longer.

I am hoping to get it finished up by the weekend, and be able to wear my first knit. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
