Thankfully Finished

It's done - and I am very happy with both the fit and the style.  I love the way the neck line fits, and sleeves and shoulders sit very comfortably - staying on my shoulders instead of riding to the back as so many of these shrug type sweaters do on me.

The back has a nice drape creating a slightly rounded lower edge and the illusion of waist shaping, even though the knitting is just a straight piece.
I did run out of yarn while seaming the body to the top/sleeve piece.  I just subbed in some brown super wash that I had on hand, so the yarn type would be the same.  You can't see it from the right side.  So I know I'll need to adjust the yarn amounts in the pattern - this was too close for comfort. 

I would love to see this knit up in a variegated yarn, maybe a noro type. 

Pattern drafting is well underway.
