(almost) fo: slouchy cardi

I still need to add a hood to this guy, but I lost the photocopy of the pattern and the book is in Paris, so it will have to wait a couple weeks.  Also, I need to block it...I'm hoping that it will stretch out a bit upon blocking as right now it's really too tight....which is why my slimmer sister is modeling it here.

But I finished knitting the pieces several months ago, and they languished because I was without a tapestry needle to sew them together (lost my knitting notions case in my move) and even after I got one, I put off weaving in the ends.  So it's time for me to get this posted already, finished or not!
The pattern is Helene Roux's Slouchy Cardigan and the yarn is Knitpicks Gloss DK in a lavender/pink/mauve color.

A lot of modifications on this, which I documented on my ravelry page.
