I like it but....

Okay, first of all I'm home from work today because the city of Atlanta shut down because it's raining. This means in addition to getting to hang out with my family, I got to finish the second sleeve on Ravello. I like it, but I feel like I need to redo the stripes on the body and I wasn't totally happy with the way that my shaping came out. So I'm ripping out the body so that I can redo the stripes and just knit it straight down without any shaping. I'm including a picture of it pre-being ripped out though see you can see what I've done. 
I'm going to add an extra stripe to the body in the bright pink, I think.

I love palette. I worried it wouldn't wear well, or be scratchier than I'd like. Nope.  And the colors. So. Many.  Colors.
