Some sweater progress

I haven't posted anything in a while because I've had no shiny finished goodies to show off. The knitting progress has been going a bit slowly. I wanted to finish Greg's sock, and while I've turned the heel now, I haven't done more that 2" of the leg. In any case, I wanted to show what I've done of the top-down cardi so far.

After I frogged the back of the Dollar and a Half cardi, this is what I had.
So, I cast on for the new sweater, and I've been enjoying it quite a lot so far - even still, my progress is kinda slow (haha!). Here's what I've got so far.
Still doing the increases for the raglan sleeves, but it's coming along.

It's interesting how different the colours look in the two photos! You're so brave to be knitting a sweater. I am a sweater wimp, even though there are many patterns that I would love to knit. Go Karen go! =)

Yeah, the colours are really different, huh?
And how are you a sweater wimp?! You've knit, like, 3 already!

I know that I've knit sweaters, but I'm still so gun-shy about starting a new one. Or even THINKING about knitting one. I consider gauge issues, and that scares me off the whole concept. There's no way that I'd be able to just cast on the way you did, there would be plenty of dithering and hand-wringing beforehand. =)
