So I said yesterday that I'd go into the details on the sweater later, and then disappeared. Well...that was due to some technical difficulties: my husband's digital camera's batteried died on me, and he has lost the AC power cord (typical of him). So I'll have to wait to see if his batteries will hold charge a new charge or go buy some more. So you'll have to see my masterpiece later ;)
It did turn out ok, other than I used too bulky of yarn so it doesnt drape quite as well as I'd hope, but oh well - I finished my 1st sweater, Yeah!
