Knitter's Progress

Here I am, all rested up and ready to return to work. I have been busy the past few days trying to make headway on my baby brother's sweater, Here's the latest:I am hoping that if you squint your eyes up and look carefully, you can fill in the blanks between waistband and armpits, then again for the shoulders, neckline ... OK, I'll admit, there's a long way to go!

And just in case a sweater wasn't daunting enough (and for THIS knitter, it isn't! I scoff at danger like this!) just take a look at the body I am knitting it for:
Yes, the gangly one on the right. The one standing next to my 5'8" tall daughter. The one with the 21" long arms. The one who was sick with the flu yesterday and battling his first big ick in the town of Arcata, home to Humboldt State University.

I caved when he asked me for a wool sweater to combat the cool, damp weather in Arcata. But looking at that photo, I can safely say I will refuse if he asks me to knit him leggings!
