overdue photo shoot

The weather is finally cooperating, so I can wear the Tilted Duster and not succumb to heat exhaustion immediately. When it's right around 60 and a bit windy, the sweater is perfect.

(Click here to see the inspiration for the poses.)

I like the neck, because it stands up enough to protect my neck, and I don't need a scarf. I don't have the willowy neck of Interweave's model, so I probably should have made it a bit shorter, but it's working out fine.

I need to add a hook and eye to close the points of the front. Right now, I'm using a safety pin, but a more permanent solution would be good.

So what sweater is up next? The Hourglass Sweater? The Half-Circle Cardigan? The Urban Turtleneck? I can't decide.
