I'm so glad to have finally finished this. The Drops Jacket (103-1) that's been awfully popular since last fall (350 in Ravelry!). There's no good reason to have taken 4 months to complete this, although I did have some other projects in the meantime.
I had a lot of inquiries regarding using the Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky yarn for this sweater. I think it would work better at a smaller gauge with some of the math reworked instead of forcing the gauge via needle size, which is what I did. I'm not 100% pleased with the drape of the fabric, but this is also a function of the 100% wool. Hopefully it will soften with some wear. Some of what is aesthetically pleasing in the original photo is the drape of the fabric, and I think that could be better achieved using some sort of blended wool, or something else altogether.
