Finished Sleeveless Somewhat Cowl

Late, but complete! I still have two balls of yarn, but liked it as-is and couldn't deal with working on it anymore. Fits GREAT! It's so nice, after knitting for 18 months to finally have sweaters that fit well! I modified the pattern for sleevelessness in case I didn't have enough (discontinued) yarn to finish the body or cowl. I put the sleeve stitches on a holder, provisionally cast on for the underarm and continued as written. It's also shorter due to my short torso. I don't have one, so definately no need for waist shaping! Hemmed the sleeves on the machine for speed.
