Summer Solstice, finished

I finished Summer Soltice, and I really, really like it! I followed the pattern almost exactly - I just lengthened a little, because I had more of a vision of a kind of jacket than a shortish cardigan. Although parts of how the instructions were written seemed unnecessarily complicated, all is forgiven.

I think it fits me very well right now, after blocking. I know this yarn, which is 50/50 bamboo/cotton is likely to stretch out over time, so it will be interesting to see if and how it holds it's shape.
You will have to forgive the wrinkles in the back, it was only 90 percent dry when I stuffed it in my bag to take out for photos, and my stylist was having an off day.
