29. Mr. Greenjeans (almost) done

My camera is on vacation and makes guest visits home. Yesterday was my birthday, so the camera and the Dear One dropped in. Both are gone again, but should be home to stay in a few days. But when the camera visits, I try to take a couple of quick pictures. This is my unblocked Mr. Greenjeans. It was a fast enjoyable knit. The yarn is a merino/mohair blended hand dye from my LYS. Only occasionally did I have to alternate two skeins. Most of the time, the yarn behaved itself wonderfully and did not pool. About a week after this picture was taken, I still have to weave in the ends and find, then sew on a button. I have buttons from my grandma, so I'm looking forward to finding a button of hers in the button jar. Hopefully tomorrow will be blocking day. I'm just thinking of spritzing the sweater and damp blocking. The knit was relatively quick, so the sweater didn't get drug all over the place getting dirty.
