Sweater Complete!

Well, almost...I still have to weave in the ends, but you can't really see them in the picture! It's a little small, but I did that on purpose as I'm in the process of attempting to lose weight. And I really need to wear like a tank top or something under it when I do wear it out in public - which probably won't be until next year as the temperatures are already in the 80's out here and it doesn't look like it's going to cool off again anytime soon. Oh well. I'm still proud! It's the first wearable I have made (other then shawls) and it turned out exactly as expected! And I didn't even crochet up a guage. Bad Jenny! When will I ever learn? Anyways, the specifics - the pattern came out of the winter Simply Creative Crochet and I used Patons Classic Wool in colors I can't remember off the top of my head (I'm at work) and Patons SWS in Natural Navy (the stripes). I'll let you know what the brown and natural colors are when I get home. So, now to the picture!

Well, what do you think?
