Short Sleeves That Took a Long Time

Finally. The Ms. Hyacinth Jeans is washed, blocked, woven, done. I don't have too much to say about it other than that. Behold it from many angles:

The pattern is Mr. Greenjeans from Knitty; the yarn is Malabrigo Merino Worsted in Jacinto.

I obviously modified it to make a pullover...

...and then shortened the sleeves while lengthening the body.

The hemline doesn't actually ripple like that - I need a photo stylist.
Who probably would've repainted the wall and removed the cat dish, too.

The recipient? Unknown. Anna, while slim, has rower's shoulders (that's a good thing) and Fiona hasn't seen it yet. One thing we know for sure is that it's not for me - short sleeves and a long fitted body are not finding their way into my wardrobe anytime soon!
