Not to self: in the future, photograph a striped sweater on the floor, or on a chair, or on a table. NOT ON A QUILT.
But the hoodie goes well, and goes quickly.
Football weekend at our house--the last game starts at 1:40 our time and we'll be rooting for the Broncos and Peyton, of course. And I might, *might*, get the back done on this sweater.
And a reminder: I'm posting about the progress of my OWN alpaca project here: The Paca Project. I cast on for the first project, a cowl, and you can follow its progress over there. I will also post pics here as it develops if you are not enchanted by the minutia of me knitting alpaca.

The blue shrug thing is progressing. There's very interesting construction on this--stitches on the side of the back are picked up, then the front is knit in short rows. I am almost done with the front and then will pick up and do the left hand side. Then, I sew the shoulder seams and set in the seams.
It's going well and is fun to knit. Tehre's also this sort of automatic icord edge which is kind of cool. All in all, I think this is a good knit with a nice challenge to it.
