I am over the moon that I actually finished a sweater! It fits him great, he loves it, and I think it turned out fantastic! I started a sweater a few years back, and the thing was a mess (not my fault as much as the pattern), and then I hated the yarn I decided on, so it was frogged and never restarted.

I am still very intimidated by sweaters.
Pick an easy pattern, like this one was easy. I would guess that any knit in the round sweater (knitting pure and simple is supposed to be cake too), would be a great, easy sweater. It really was basics that were needed - knitting in the round, decreases, rib stitch. Color switch if you wish, but you wouldn't even have to.

I don't know why I waited so long to try this again! And I just used plymouth galway because I had some skeins here, I went through 1 3/4 blue and probably 1/2 of grey but that was already partially used from an old project. This was a size 5ish.

Thanks everyone for checking it out!
