rick's first sweater

I've just started my first sweater! It's the Seamless Saddle Shoulder Pullover by Elizabeth Zimmerman. I've had this in queue for a couple of months now and I've been contemplating what stitch patterns to use, the color, the style, etc. I've finally decided that I want a very basic sweater in stockinette. This will allow me to focus on construction and form as opposed to pattern, and I will get a lot of wear out of it as it will be a versatile garment.

I'm using Paton's Classic Wool Merino "Worn Denim" on size 8 needles. At this point the plan is to create a hem in a contrasting color (to be decided), and create a crew, or possibly v-neck. I think I have some time to figure that out.

I like the color.

I say go for the V neck, you can throw a shirt under it for a very classy look or go with out, both are great.
