First FO of 2006!

I finally finished the hourglass sweater. I started on it during the drive to Chicago over Christmas so I guess it didn't take me THAT long. I learned a few things making this sweater. I learned the kitchener stitch, how to knit in the round and how to hem down live stitches. I also learned that sleeves are killer! They seem to take longer than the body. Even though the yarn is 100% alpaca, it itches a little so I'll have to layer a tee underneath. I still think that I will get a ton of wear out of this sweater.
