Sun on my Shoulders - Finished!

I finally sewed the buttons on this morning.  I'm not sure about this one yet.  I may tweak the design some before I knit another one.  The armholes are rather deep, although I knit them per the pattern.  I think that it is partly an artifact of the yoke construction.  Perhaps if I were wearing this over a shirt I wouldn't notice it as much.  The yarn is very soft and silky, as it should be considering that it is 50% silk.  That makes it have a lot of drape - think silk charmeuse, only heavier.

Pattern:  loppem by Norah Gaughan
Yarn:  aran silky merino by Sundara in Gold in the Sky
Needle:  US 8 (5.0 mm)
