I finished my second adult sized sweater last night and I think it's pretty good. Unlike Klaralund (my first sweater), I will actually wear this one. It's still a wee tad hot for sweaters in Big Texas, but I'm sure I'll find myself in an over air-conditioned building sometime between now and November when it might actually be cool enough to wear it outside. Because I seem to be incapable of "modeling" without making ridiculous faces and because Bob says things like "Make it work!" while taking the pictures, I end up with this type of photo. Sadly, it's the best of the bunch, but at least it's a decent picture of the sweater.
Pattern: Mr. Greenjeans by Amy Swenson. I made the size small with longer sleeves and a wider button band. If I were to knit it again (and I probably will), I'd use a different increase for the shoulders. The one thing I don't love about this sweater are the YO holes across the shoulders.
Yarn: Brooks Farm Yarn Four Play which I bought at Kid 'n Ewe last year with this particular project in mind. This is a great yarn and I intend to buy another sweater quantity at this year's Kid 'n Ewe.
Bob and I are off to the motherlands (first mine, then his) tomorrow. I'm sure that much knitting and yarn purchasing will ensue. I haven't decided if I'll drag the computer along or not, so I may be away from the blog for a couple of weeks. We're flying so I have some critical vacation knitting decisions to make and that may take the rest of the afternoon.
