Mr Greenjeans



I finished knitting Mr Greenjeans last week. I washed and blocked it and let it dry, forever! I swear, even with a space heater blowing over it, it took 3 days for it to dry. And I really wrung it too!

All it needs is the button which I'm going to get today on a trip to Joann's or Michael's today with my mom. But I probably won't wear it with the button fastened because the style of the sweater is an inverted V from the button down which for a big hipped girl isn't exactly something you want to highlight!

The yarn is Knit Pick's Swish using size 7 Denise needles which rocked because I could use the cords as stitch holders and just put the needles on for doing the sleeves.

It looks great! It's amazing how long it takes to air dry something here in the NW, eh? ;)

Thanks! I read on the Thrifty Knitters board on Ravelry that some people put their hand knits in the oven at the lowest temperature. I tried that once but it didn't really seem to speed up the process. I'm thinking of using a blow dryer next time!

Looks great! Can't wait to see the final product modeled on you with the button!
