This swrater looks fantastic! Solve the sweater on, sweater off dance after a certain age? Keep my areas of arthritic type pain warm and cozy while not being overwhelming? Half cardigan w the advantages of a pullover. And adorable! Can't wait to try it!

The woman in the picture, wearing the drop stitch sweater, looks exactly like my sister.  This sweater will be a surprise gift to her, just for the fun of it.  I like the drop stitch look.  Wish I could incorporate it, more often, in one of my self-designed patterns.  I've been too cautious thus far.  You have inspired me to study this design a bit more; and, I will ponder it while knitting the sweater for my sister.  A big Thank You!!!
