Quiting Stitch Top

A belated posting. I finished this sweater back in June, but never got around to post it for various reasons.
I used quilted stitch with yarn only traveled on the right side of sweater.  The yarn I used was Cascade Eco Alpaca, color 1510 Natural and 1515 Chocalate. I really love the buttery feel of this yarn. I think I'm turning into an Alpaca fan. I used US #4 needles for the ribbing, otherwise, it was US #6 for most of the knitting. 

I think the sweater looks kinda funky with the contrast quilting stitch, and I love that. While I was knitting it, I kept thinking, it looks like a giraffe! Even Paul liked this design.  

The sweater has a funnel neck, short sleeves. It's gonna be perfect for layering for the coming fall.
