The spring sweater I started over a month ago is almost done!

Well, the front and back are done -- it still needs sleeves and a neckline. So maybe not almost done, but gettin' there.

But I'm going to show you now, because, well, it's Mother's Day!

The pattern is from Picture Perfect Knits, a kind of beginner's guide to intarsia. I'm a newbie so it got a little messy, but apparently even the wrong side of an expert's intarsia isn't much to look at. It's like a mullet -- business in front, party in back.

I heart mom. Here's a little history and slideshow of the iconic tat.

Oliver got this for a tattoo for mother's day. He's really hardcore, you know.
