Crazy person flies to Florida


We had our first snow in Washington today and the sweater looks right at home.
Friday I'm going to Miami for our family Christmas. We'll be opening presents on Dec. 9 because that's most convenient for us. We're flexible: opening presents and eating a turkey is Christmas, no matter what the calendar says.
Of course, I'm taking along the sweater and I expect to finish it . I'll be there for over a week and all I have left is the sleeve cuffs, raw edge finishing and blocking. I'm doing carry-on luggage (presents were mailed last week) so.....I'm going to wear this sweater on the plane. If I have any more time I'll try to take care of the hanging threads. If anyone notices my sleeves aren't the same length, will they mention it? Stay tuned.
I see in this photo that the front patterns don't line up; in real life they're okay. Maybe my next photo will involve tropical foliage and lipstick. I seem to think of blogging on my commute and take pictures late at night. Not very flattering.
Jean, I can't wait to see a photo of your birds! Astrid, can we see a photo of your gorgeous sweater being modeled, or is it being saved for a Chrismas present?
Blog to you next week: Mom doesn't have a computer. But she knows about blogging!

Hi Leslie,

I don't have a picture of me wearing the sweater, as I gave it to my mother for her birthday two weeks ago. She's very happy with it and just loves how it keeps her warm. The roses are her favorite as well!

Have a safe trip!

love,
Astrid.
