Jayne's Progress

Hi there

Amazing progress from everybody (despite what you may think), and wonderful colour choices. I can’t wait to see all the finished projects being modelled by the proud owners.

I am charging along with my blue version of Mr Greenjeans. This is not because I am an incredibly fast knitter, it is just because I had a whole weekend where I knit as much as I possibly could. I also had Monday off and squeezed in a bit extra there. Now that I am back at work full day things have slowed down but I have still managed to finish the body. I did make it a bit longer than the pattern stated, mainly because I’m quite tall and otherwise it looks TOO short. I was going to post a photo but I can’t find the cable. The cabled ribbing is a bit tight (I used the size smaller needle as directed)) but I’m sure it will be fine once it is blocked.

Now I just need to do the sleeves, the button (singular) band, sew in all the ends, and block it.

BTW – what classes as “Finished”? All knitting done, fully assembled OR All knitting done, fully assembled, ends sewn in, button sewn on, and blocked?

Absolutely finished wins the I wore it today and it now belongs in my closet finished

Really finished is good. You want pix of the inside as well (grin).

I also didn't go down a needles size for the cable portion since I decided it was drawing in enough.

OK - that makes it much clearer. Here's hoping I get all that done by the end of the weekend. I want to WEAR this thing.
