Stone Mouse

This week I finished Glenn's 2013 "birthday" sweater.  I knit Jared Flood's Brownstone using Miss Babs Yowza - Whatta Skein in Field Mouse.

Glenn gets lots of bonus points for modeling this heavy wool sweater on a hot, muggy morning.





Overall I am satisfied. I do think the raglan is a bit too long, so the neck opening and armpits sit an inch or two too low. Glenn requested toggles, so I sat down this morning and crocheted the loops to secure them.  The crochet turned out better than I was expecting, but I was a bit sloppy in attaching them to the sweater.
