This was a fun, quick knit. Plenty of variety in the stitch patterns, and no sleeves.
Caution on the pattern though. There is errata, but even the errata didn't cover the most confusing error I found - right leaning decreases in the lace patterns were labeled ssk in the stitch key and left learning decreases in the stitch key were labeled k2tog. Also, there is no help in planning how to make the lace look decent when the neck decreases start. A beginning knitter might have a very challenging time of it.
I washed and blocked it late last week, and wore it to church on Sunday over darker gray slacks and turtleneck.
The ribbings have a slightly ruffled look from a yarnover, k2tog row just before the bind off.
It fits, but I wish it was a little smaller. I've lost fourteen pounds since late December, and my knitting mind hasn't wrapped around the fact that I don't need garments with a 40 inch bust anymore.
