Today I thought we'd take a look back at the first sweater I ever knit - the Ribbon Tie Cardigan from Knit.1. It was knit way back in 2005 out of Lion Suede. Here is my original FO picture, complete with a dribble of Starbucks on my white top. (For the record, last week I dribbled Starbucks on my white top on the way to CT Sheep and Wool. Some things never change.)
The status of this first sweater? It's tucked away in a drawer in the spare room. It still doesn't have a ribbon tie. I think I only wore it once. Honestly, although I guess I loved it when I first knit it, I believe that was simply because it was my first sweater. I don't like chenille yarns. I don't like sweaters with 3/4 sleeves. I don't like the length of this sweater (it's too short). But I'll probably always keep it, tucked away in that drawer, because it's my first sweater and I can't bear to part with it.
