I FINALLY started Mr. Greenjeans. I've never knit a Raglan sweater nor a top down sweater, so this will be a first for me on both counts! I really didn't have a yarn in my stash (believe it or not!) that was well suited for this project. Well....I did have one, but that's earmarked for the Knitty Samus sweater.
I finally settled on a mottled brick red yarn from Aslan Trends. Its called Artesanal and is 40% cotton, 30% alpaca, and 30% polyamide. I think it will make a perfect springtime sweater. I've only knit about 21 rows so far, so no pictures yet.
Wish me luck!
