Finally finished Thermal! I have been hovering on this string for a while watching everyone else progress and finish theirs. I actually started Thermal around Easter, but didn't finish it until September. It turned into my lunch knit and that slows things down sometimes.
I added a button to the collar band, and did some short-row shaping on the sleeve cap to add a bit of length and somewhere for my pointy shoulders to go.
I used Knit Picks Gloss in Cocoa. The yarn is a bit pilly not that I have worn the sweater a few times, but it is very soft, and not the least bit itchy with the silk. I love the buttons I found. They have gold glints to them, and depending on how the light hits them, they go from a sparkly brown to a deep cocoa.
All in all I am very pleased with this sweater and have 2 requests from friends for one. I ordered some Gloss in Dusk for another sweater.
