A finished object by Colleen! It's the Shalom sweater (free pattern from Involving the Senses, easily found on Ravelry), made out of approximately 5 skeins of Lamb's Pride Bulky in Old Sage.
Unfortunately, Colleen refused to be photographed actually wearing the sweater. Which is beautiful by the way. It's all the good things about a cardigan combined with all the good things about a vest. AND it's knitted top down on US 11 needles. The only negative is that the pattern is written for one size. But I'm sure I could help anybody figure out different sizing.
If you want to see an actual person modeling this sweater, check out the links above, or Jessica's blog (and her Shalom has long sleeves!)
