GG: Thanks for your kind comments. Yeah, I'm glad I added the leaf lace to the sleeves. It seems to tie everything together well--and that's a good thing when you're mixing two patterns together.
I'm kinda surprised, though, that the only variation of this pullover on Ravelry is with longer sleeves. It's such a simple top-down raglan that it screams, "Do something interesting with me!" I like the plain version, too, and may have to make one of those as well.
Thanks for looking!
