Here it is, all finished:
I really like it even if it was absolute torture sewing it together on one of the hottest days of the year! The fabric is soft and decadent feeling and it fits perfectly. I'm sure I'll get plenty of wear out of it in the cooler seasons.
This is the 2nd Garnstudio sweater I have made from their free patterns and I have to say, although the designs are clever and relatively simple to knit, the instructions leave a bit to be desired. They are fairly confusing and vague in places as well as unnecessarily wordy. Victim of poor translation, perhaps? Whatever the case may be it is a nice design but I don't think I'll be making another one any time soon, lol.
