More on my blog here and here.

I may have chosen way too vivid a green for this. Especially with it not fitting as closely as I’d like. But I can’t imagine ripping it, so it sits lonely waiting for me to order 6 gigante buttons.

2/19/2010 All ends are woven in. Just waiting on the buttons I ordered. I ordered the buttons from this place and found them to be cheaper than if I’d bought at large chain hobby store. I like it ok. It’s definitely green.

3/6/10 Sewed on buttons yesterday and it looks pretty good. Could’ve knitted tighter or sized it down actually. Tried to squish it together some as it blocked because it’s not the shrunken fit on me that it appears to be in the book, but it’s fine as a regular chunky-knit sweater. Felt like the buttons were a bit heavy keeping the ribbing at bottom from being more fitted, but oh well-it’s very green and very finished.
