And now, the Sweater!

But first, a word from our sponsor - -
Here are some progress shots of the Rhiannon socks:
The back:

The front:

And the cuff:

Believe it or not, these are all of the same sock, taken with the same camera. I guess that orange is so wildly psychedelic that the camera just couldn't figure out what to do with it.

So, on to the sweater -
So far, I've used almost 2 skeins of Wool of the Andes, and here's some progress pics to show:

The first picture is a detail of the Mossy Diamonds pattern. The second one is just a general progress picture. The pattern is from Knit Picks, and is here.

I picked Wool of the Andes white. Mom works as one of those "Pink Ladies" in the hospital where she lives, and in the summer time, they crank the air conditioning. The front desk is right under a vent, and Mom spent most of last summer looking for a nice white sweater to wear. Since it was summer, and she lives in the desert, you can imagine what kind of luck she had. I'm hoping to have it done by her birthday (as I've said before), so we'll see. I've been working on this since Tuesday night, and I'm making pretty good progress. Once I get to the waist shaping, I'll know better.
And now, my current favorite lolcats:
