I finished up the main piece of the lamb all-in-one last night. You might notice something a little off in this photo.

If you look up at the tops of the fronts, you will notice that the shaping is identical on both sides. This, of course, should not be. Fortunately, it's just a couple of rows. That is why I hate when patterns just tell you to mirror the other side. I always have this crises at the end where I get myself so confused that I just jump in. I've been lucky up to now. I didn't even notice until I laid the piece out for the picture. I will begin the sleeves this week, and hope to actually have the whole enchilada wrapped up by next weekend. I also need to put a zipper in the zippy cardigan, and then I can mail both things out at once.

I'm working on the first triangle bit of my tank.

Whenever I'm working something in the round, I rarely, if ever, use stitch holders to hold my non-working stitches. This is convenient for me, because then I don't have holders flailing about and I feel like I have more control over the piece, but it's not so good for picture taking. I'm very excited to see how this comes out. I hope I did my math right and it fits!

I would also like to bring to your attention the severely different lighting in both of these photos. I took these pictures about three minutes apart, in the same room, in the same amount of natural light (no flash), and from the same angle. What the hell is going on? I can't get a good picture of this all-in-one for love or money! I'll keep experimenting, I guess.

I think those are good pictures but you're right, they light is very different. Congratulations on your progress, I look forward to your FO pictures.

Nice work. It all looks great.
But I did notice that your toes always try to sneak into the picture.

If your camera has auto-adjusting exposure, it might think that since the white is so bright, it doesn't need to let much light in, so the picture ends up looking kind of dark. Try pointing your camera at a darker spot on the table, or even just to your side in a shadow, push the button down halfway to set the exposure level, then (with the button still pushed halfway) point it at the all-in-one and push the rest of the way to take the picture. That way, it thinks that it's taking a photo of the dark area and it lets more light in before closing the shutter.

I can't wait to see that all-in-one finished! :)

The construction of Lamb looks interesting. I bet it's a blast to knit!
