Another project on the go

A sweater for my son. This was started before I left for the cottage, and has actually progressed quite a bit more since I took this picture.

I've finished the one sleeve,and am about halfway done the second sleeve. It shouldn't take too long, and then I will finish the body, and add the neckband. I'm making this intentionally long - partially because my kid seems to grow exponentially, and partially since I plan on washing and drying this sweater, and the 50% cotton will shrink it up a bit. It will also tighten the stitches up a bit, which is what I planned when I started this. Right now it's VERY drapey, so the little bit of tightening will give it just the right amount of drape.
The brownish taupe colour is very nice - my son approves, and I love the pop of lime green and the pale grey. I will have enough left of each of these colours for something - not sure what. Probably just stash, as I can't really see my boy wanting a co-ordinating scarf or mittens...

Off to Regionals today! A little cheer for the Regency Acres Griffins would be appreciated...

Nice sweater, enough color to keep it from being to boring.

Is there enough left over for a hat?
Kids seem to wear hats in every season (and thus never have to have a bad hair day!)

I'm blown away...again...by how fast you can knit things! It's incredible! I just don't know how you do it.
