See, this is what it looked like on Wednesday when I started to compose my WiP it post - and I thought the resulting picture was so woefully blobby that I didn't want to post it.

Looks more like a garment and less like a blob, non? It is Mr Greenjeans from the Fall 2007 issue of Knitty. I got gauge in Lion Brand Wool Ease in Sage, and I am happy with it. I figure if the sweater is flattering, I will probably make it again in a more expensive yarn (like Cascade 220 Quattro...). I have about 3 more inches of the body to knit before I start working on the cable section. What do you think my chances are of finishing it before Stitches East? I tend to knit well under pressure - my Veste Everest and Clapotis are proof of that.

I'm really looking forward to taking photos of autumn this weekend - it looks like the weather will be perfect for it, so stay tuned!
