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.
