Once you choose hope, anything is possible.

Navy blue turtleneck

This one may or may not appear in the actual SWAP as it wasn't on the original plan but will be very useful in my wardrobe.
This is basically the same as the striped top, except I was a bit short of fabric so have a single layer collar with a coverhemmed back seam (instead of a collar piece folded over on itself).
The navy fabric was a little boring so I added a strip of fabric down one side of the front as a detail and coverhemmed it in place so it will stretch with the rest of the garment. Hopefully this adds a little interest without taking away from the overall usefulness of a plain navy top.

I plan to wear this with navy trousers to give a 'column' and then put a bright boiled wool jacket on the top.

You're going to have your SWAP pieces finished before January even arrives! You're on fire.

You're on a roll, Ruthie! I am also thinking of including some elements of Nancy Nix's 'wardrobe column' into my SWAP. I'm nursing a cold at the moment and hope to do some more sewing this weekend.

That will make a lovely column look and I like the fabric strip detail.
