My birthday present to myself: a just-finished crocheted pullover sweater! It's my first garment as opposed to shawls, scarves, and so on.

It's a very thin yarn but quite warm (as far as I can tell without having cool weather to test it in).

Dragonfly sweater

What a great job on that sweater! I love the color ways--gorgeous peacock colors. Congratulations on a job well-done.

Thanks! Next time I might try doing two decreases at the end of every round on the sleeves, instead of one -- see if I can get a closer fit around the wrists. But otherwise, I'm pleased. :-)

You might recognize the yarn -- it's Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable "Dragonfly".

Yes, it is, isn't it? Looks lovely all made up like that!

BTW, hope you had a nice birthday!
