As painful as it is to rip a project back and start all over again it was totally worth it in the end (do a job right and good things are worth waiting for and all those things our mamas tell us turn out to be true after all).
The pattern is Aidez and the yarn is Cascade Eco in vanilla. I was a bit unsure of the yarn at first but found it softened up considerably as I knit and once it was blocked it was absolutely wonderful (my finds-everything-itchy girl approves of it's softness).
I ended up making a few modifications with the major ones being that I added a button band, pockets, and some stockinette stitches to the sides as well as increased the depth of the raglan shaping. The knitty-gritty details, should those sorts of things interest you, are here.
It was taken directly off the blocking board yesterday and worn all day long and this mama's calling that a success!
