My first crocheted sweater!!!

Oh wow! I finally finished my first big crochet project. :o)

The pattern is from the Danish crochetbook called 'Hæklerier' by Sys Fredens. The pattern called for baby alpaca, but I didn't want to spend alot of money on a sweater that I hardly would wear, which would be the case if I had to wash it by hand, so I ended up buying a wool and polyamid mix sock yarn. It took me a bit over 3 weeks to crochet.

Here's the finished sweater:

I'm really happy with the finished product of 3 weeks of crocheting in front of the television.
