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.
