I finished the body on the Jeannie sweater finally. This is not at all my style, and I feel like it makes me look fat because it's too small for me. (I mean, holy cow, I am NOT that busty, hahaha!) There is no doubt that it's warm though, and I think Jeannie should like it. I find it kind of suffocating, but I'm a short-sleeve girl most of the time, ha. Here I look crazy because I forgot I set the camera to 3-shot self timer instead of 1, so I started walking toward the camera before the second and third shots, haha.

Anyway, I'm fairly certain I'm going to be short on yarn by at least a half-skein, maybe more. We'll see, but I won't be surprised if that is the case.

In other yarn news, I stopped by String Thing Shop today to pick up some Zombie-Skin-Green yarn, otherwise know as Cascade 220 in Primavera. I of course ended up getting more than just one skein, which is really all that I needed. I also ended up with a Zombie-Clothing-Purple skein. (I have also decided to name the zombie toys "Living Dead Girl" (after the Rob Zombie song) and then, obviously, "Living Dead Boy.")

And I got 3 different blues which will eventually be longies for Christian. In fact, I'm pretty sure I'm going to use the middle blue for longies with stripes of whatever is left of the zombie green on the legs. That will be super adorable.

Lastly, here is a picture of Christian modeling his gray Vestee and his Volcano Boy longies:
