It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Fall!

I'm up in Oregon at my parents' house for a couple of weeks, and though it's been warm, fall is definitely coming. The trees are changing color, and this beauitful place is looking even more wonderful every day. Hopefully I'll get some cooler weather this week before I head back, so I can wear my newly finished project! I'm so happy with this sweater! I've finally created something for myself that I feel is fun, fashionable and flattering. Here are some different views of the sweater.
I made a few mistakes while knitting this. I had quite a difference between the tension of the front and back. I don't know why or how I did this, but I think I fixed most of it by blocking before I seamed. Other than that, there wasn't anything majorly wrong.
Here's a back view with my mom's finger in the corner. I really like this blue! After 6 years of knitting, I'm still learning with each project, and I really enjoyed this one!
