Mr Greenjeans!!!

I finished this off tonight, just in time to take to work with me, although if the night shift is anything like last, it will be too warm to wear it!
Pattern: Mr Green jeans
Yarn: Rowan All seasons cotton 7 balls
Needles: 5.0mm Boyes interchangeable circs

The only modification I made to the pattern was to make full length sleeves. I always have cold hands so I like to be able to pull cardigan sleeves right down over my fingers if I'm feeling particuarly cold:-)
The boiler is fixed too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, off for food then to work. One down, five to go!!!!!!!!

Lovely Cardi, and looks super with longer sleeves, perfect for our interchangable weather. Glad to hear you now have hot water.

Looks brilliant on you - a great fit! I've toyed with knitting this pattern, and I'm going to queue it now after seeing yours (don't think it'll look quite as good on me though!).

Hurrah for plumbers!

Love that cardi - should be so useful and snug though I'm glad that the boiler fixing means the need for snugness is slightly less pressing!

Urchin and Montego Bay are both also real beauties.
