Hooray for pictures!

It's at the point where I have a hard time putting down my needles. I can tell that something exciting will happen in 10 minutes-no, 5! One more row and I can start decreasing!

Yeah, right, thinks the sweater, Keep on dreaming.

Let me interject here that these pictures were taken on a borrowed camera, which I clearly do not know how to use. The stripes below the garish red color are actually a pale pink, not a washed out cream. When I first glanced at the pictures I couldn't figure out what was making the colors so bizarre. The camera is fancy enough that I would be able to correct this problem were I knowledgeable enough to use the manual settings.

This is a closer view where you can see the split for the neck and collar:
I'm using Rowan yarn instead of Debbie Bliss yarn, but the colors are pretty much identical to the pictures in the book. Although I do keep catching glimpses of purple in the brown skeins...

The colors look fine from here -- nothing garish about the red, and the pink looks pink. You may want to adjust the settings on your computer monitor. The sweater looks great!

Aww, thanks. I'm glad it looks better from there than it does from my laptop. I've got some more progress in, I'll try to get some pictures up soon.
