Little Boy Green

It is finished!

I used Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Cavern, Jade, Dusty Sage and Steel Blue (I think that was it). You can tell because of the black where I discontinued the stranded pattern more than in the light colored version in the magazine, but that is okay with me. Because of where the decreases were, this was easier, and I scrutinized the photo, and they did the same thing. It took less than half the yarn the pattern called for, less than two skeins of the black, maybe one and a half, to the four recommended in the pattern. The cuffs are a touch too short on, but I can either knit another round in the other direction or just decide I don't care. He likes it a lot, and I had a hard time taking it off of him, so I could wash it before I let him wear it for real. I'm going to wait until I wash it to decide whether or not to knit that extra round, as the cotton in it might cause it to stretch a bit.
