I really like this sweater, although since I did most of the knitting and finishing over a year ago before getting pregnant, I can see how my knitting has improved in my current projects. I really worked hard to make the side shaping and ribbing work together, I remember getting out my notebook and planning where to work each purl and knit stitch so that the shaping didn't end up sloppy. But, it's very hard to get a decent picture with the black yarn. The sleeves ended up too long and I have to roll them up. The neckline feels a little thick, but for the most part I'm happy. The sweater is wearable and has taught me a lot about knitting sweaters. Plus, the hearts are a lot of fun, both the knitting of and the wearing.
