A Sweater for All Seasons AKA Lace Notes

I FINALLY finished this sweater on the first day of the new year.  I started it in Jan. 2011, abandoned it to complete some gift knitting, then when on to summer knitting, and finally picked it up again in December.  It is published in two Family Circle books:  Easy Plus Size Knits where it's called Lace Notes, and in Easy Family Knits where it's called A Sweater for All Seasons.  That's how it's listed on Ravelry too. I used Valley Yarns Goshen from Webs in colonial blue, and I knit the 2nd smallest size (plus size pattern).

It took me a long time to seam --- and that's a finishing skill I need to improve!  Patience would help.  I am very happy with the fit and length.  Because Goshen is cotton, silk, and modal, I'm hoping it won't be too hot to wear in classroom.
