I finally finished the yoke, secured the steek stitches and cut. Less painful than I figured. I have to say the instructions for this sweater are a bit cryptic. The author assumes the knitter is knowledgeable about construction and finishing. Ever the teacher, I look at it from a new knitter's prospective. However, I like the fit so far and I think it will be a favorite sweater.
I made the Concentric shawlette for the shop, and it was a fun and easy project. The size is perfect for a summer evening to wear over bare shoulders.
