I finally finished Thermal from Knitty.

Yarn: Knit Picks Gloss in Cocoa; 70% Merino Wool, 30% Silk.
Needles: 3mm Double Point and 3mm Circular (both Knit Picks)
Notes: I love this sweater!! I love the yarn as it is warm minus the itch. Some mods I did was to add some short-row shaping the the sleeve cap as I have point shoulders. I also added a button to the collar band instead of only the two the pattern called for. I love my buttons!

Instead of knitting the button band and then stitching the sides to the sweater, I slipped a stitch from the button band through the edge of the sweater as I knit up. I hate seaming, so if I can attach while knitting with not much extra work, I will.
