Yes, I'm mostly happy. Actually, that's an understatement. I'm quite thrilled. The fit could be improved slightly (just slightly) in two areas: the waist shaping and the waist hem. I think I'll move the waist increases about two inches higher in the final version of the pattern. I'm not sure how to address that little flair at the waist. Maybe I need to move the waist decreases higher as well.
For the first time, however, the armhole fit is absolutely perfect. No complaints there! It's fitted just right and it doesn't pucker a bit. Although, from reading Silvia yesterday, I wonder if the sweater is too fitted for this year's "look."
A closeup of those bell sleeves (slightly cropped, so that they don't snag on anything):
As you know, the sweater is my own design, and there's a pattern. I won't, however, give you the pattern today. The pattern is ready to go, but I want it to sit for a few days so that I can return to it with fresh eyes for one last proofread and I want to see if a few days of wear will offer other insights into other possible improvements.
Looks like I'm all dressed for the Team Boston par-tay today. Hope to see lots of my teammates there!
