Mr. Greenjeans - Modeled!

We finally got a bit of sunshine today, and I took that to mean that it was meant to be that I get a few pictures of me modeling Mr. Greenjeans


This is my favorite sweater ever! It fits perfectly, and the color is really great on me - if I do say so myself!


I think I will definitely be knitting at least one more for me (and maybe one for my mom).
This is the medium size and it took about 3.25ish skeins of Dream In Color Classy in the Blue Lagoon colorway (teal is my fave!).


I had to wear my new Love (1) Ravelry tee, because that is really how I feel about this sweater.


I can't believe how slimming it is.  I guess it nips in at just the right place.

The only alteration I made was knitting plain ribbing on the sleeves, and ending the bottom of the sweater with a bit of plain ribbing.  Other than that, it's knit exactly as written.

PS.  The podcast will be back next Saturday (I've been battling a really bad sinus infection all week and I still don't sound normal).

Well, what are you waiting for?  Go knit your own Mr. Greenjeans!

Indeed I shall... but I have to find a yarn in my stash that I like. It looks great! Thanks for modeling, it always makes a difference to see it on a body.
