Knit sweater. Super easy!

When it comes to sweaters, I have always preferred knitting. However, the last time I went fabric shopping I fond a really nice red wool knit fabric that I just couldn't turn down and I had the perfect pattern for it.
Vogue 7272, available in my Etsy store.

I by-passed using my serger and trimmed down the seam allowance once it was stitched together. The pattern calls for a long zipper in the back but I decided to skip that part too and just use an eye-and-hook to close. All together, it took about 3 hours and no knitting can competete with that!
