I definitely left my color comfort zone when I decided to knit an entire sweater in yellow! I'm glad I did, though, because I really like this color a lot. I think this sweater turned out great! The fit is really nice, and I like the style a lot. It's way too hot to wear it now, but it will be really nice when fall hits. I'm glad I decided to make the long sleeve version. If it's going to be super warm, why not go all the way. The cotton/alpaca blend of the yarn gives the fabric a nice drape. I'm hoping it won't stretch out too much lengthwise as it gets worn. I didn't make any modifications to this pattern at all except add more length and place the waist shaping increases and decreases where they were appropriate. Aside from the miles of plain stockinette, this is a fun sweater to knit, and I think it would be hard to really mess it up!
