Running out of yarn stretched your creativity in a new direction and produced a cool sweater. I like the neckline you have in the picture.
I'm wearing a brown top underneath; there is no gray except in the sleeves. I'm still not happy with the neckline, and I may have posted this already, but I'm going to re-do the knitted on I-cord to pick up every other row or maybe 3 rows out of four instead of every row as I have now. If the neck line would stay in the shape as it is in the picture, I'd be satisfied.

I like the sweater more and more; it just wasn't at all what I had pictured it being when I started the adventure!
