Here is a picture of the yarn used. I love the colors together. The yarn shop owner has such good taste when it comes to which colors work well together. It's a tricky talent. I can't visualize the blending in my mind, but those who are adept at it can create such lovely palettes and art with fiber.
And here is a picture of the sweater in progress. In the background is something from my day job ;)
Finally, a picture of the finished product:
The button bands are a little pinched; the pattern has you sewing them on separately and instructs you to knit the bands a little shorter than the sweater length. I think I may have overdone that part, but hopefully a good blocking will sort it all out.
