Wicked Hand in My Pocket

I can hear Alanis Morissette singing along with me, "I've got one hand in my pocket....."

In case you missed my previous rants, I had a late start waiting on backordered Rowan Denim for the Wicked knit-a-long with KIP and SNK. This project also did double-duty for Project Spectrum in Blue for the months of Feb/Mar. The denim cotton yarn shrinks 20% in length just like a pair of jeans and takes on a fade over time. I debated knitting it longer for shrinkage but didn't and it turned out just fine as I like my shirts to ride above the low-waist line anyways. The only adjustment I made was to finish the bottom in the crossover rib pattern.
