Grey sweater finished!
I was a bit worried about fit, since the yarn specified in the pattern wasn't available in the States, and I chose a yarn that I ended up not being able to get gauge with. But the sizes given in the pattern seemed unreasonably large to me, so I chose a larger size than I would normally use and knitted it with a tighter gauge than specified, and hoped that it would work out - and it did!
The yarn has a bit of sheen, and it didn't photograph that well - it's actually a solid color (and doesn't look shiny in person). If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you can get a better view of the lace edging.
