Benedict Sans ? - A first attempt at Sans Serifs

After reading a few old posts about appropriate sans serifs to accompany classic serifs, I decided to make an attempt at designing a sans serif to accompany the Benedictine Pro face. Tentatively named Benedict Sans, here's what has been done so far for the regular weight (to be followed by book and bold):


Thanks in advance for your attention. And have a nice summer ...

I like what you have here so far, but I'm not sure those numerals really harmonize with your letterforms. I do enjoy the bit of uncial shown here - it's a nice contrast to the staid stressed-sans. I like that the soft joins remind me of an eye exam :)

Cheers.
