One day after posting my list, I’m able to cross off one of my projects! In all fairness, the list has been in the works for a while (it’s not so easy to come up with 101 goals, even when I know I have at least that many ideas floating around and projects to finish), and the project has been sitting in a nearly-completed state for some time now. Regardless, I consider it a good start, and I’m so excited to have this one done! Here it is:

This is the Child’s Placket-Neck Pullover. The pattern was originally published in Last-Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson, but it’s now available as a free download on Ravelry. The pattern is definitely a good one–this is my very first sweater, and I’d say it turned out pretty well. I would not call myself an experienced knitter at all–I used so many YouTube videos to help me along with unfamiliar stitches, etc., but for the most part this sweater came together nicely.


Baby boy seems to like it, and it goes so well with his mama-made Christmas pants.  The arms appear to be a bit, um, short, but I haven’t blocked the sweater yet, so hopefully that’ll help out a bit.

Now that I’ve finished my first sweater, I feel like I could knit anything!
