Blocking pics

Blogger was cranky this afternoon, but obviously is happier tonight. I didn't pin the lace/ribbing at the bottom so it doesn't look straight - but I think it will be fine. Same with the sleeves below. They look larger because they are on the daybed and the body is on the floor.

I cast on Mr. Greenjeans and already have 4 of the 7 repeats done. It is moving very quickly - maybe I'll have 2 new sweaters for the Indiana trip :-)

I just spoke to Mom and she is planning to spend Christmas with us!! I will fly to wherever she changes planes to meet her and fly her here. She is still pretty darn good for an 87 year old, but I hate to see her negotiating the airports alone (or only with the aid of an airport porter). I felt sad that she spent Christmas alone last year since my brother had to work.

I hope to have more to post soon ~
