Progress Report

I've split for the front and back, and am working on the back. The front stitches are on the stitch holders, if you can tell from the crappy overcast snowy day photo. I'm hoping that ruffling you see will disappear with a good blocking.

I'm in that place of knitting where you're supposed to knit even until you reach XX inches. Then you knit, knit, knit, measure, knit, knit, knit, measure again, and you're at the same measurement as the last time. Why does that happen?

That's all I've got today.

Wait, I have a quick Mom story.

Last night we were standing by the stove as I was making supper. All of a sudden she sort of inhaled in horror and pointed past my head at the cupboard sort of behind me. I turned my head to look, sure that there was going to be some huge spider or something equally horrific, and there was an Asian Ladybeetle going up the cupboard. I turned my head back to Mom, puzzled that she was reacting that way, and she was doing that silent, hand over her mouth, shoulders hunched laughing. The little bugger!

Then I looked at the food on the stove to make sure she hadn't put something (crayon?) in there when I had turned my head. I didn't find anything.

I love your vest! Can't wait to see the finished product. You will have to have a picture of you modelling it for us!

Your mom. She never ceases to amuse. It's so nice to see how the two of you get along so well. These are the good times Annie. Hang on to these memories.
