Finished the Left Front

I just finished the left front piece of the sweater. I was a little nervous that it would in no way match up with the back, but to my pleasant surprise it’s looking great so far.

This is my first time knitting anything larger than a hat and it has some serious shaping in it, requiring measuring (something new to me in knitting also). It’s a different style of knitting for me, as I’m used to counting rows and following a pretty rigid pattern. If find this way is much easier to put down and come back to, so long as I have a measuring tape around. I can’t wait to get started on the other front piece.
