Finally...

I was happily knitting the neck shaping on the right side of Mom's vest when lo and behold I realized that I had the shaping on the wrong side. Ugh! I should have looked at the left side to determine exactly where the neck shaping should be. So I had to frog 20, yes 20, rows.
Happily, I have now finished the right side. Yay! Next up is ironing, seaming, pockets, button and buttonhole bands and collar. 
It sounds like a lot, but believe me I am turning cartwheels that I am at this point. What a knitting journey this has been so far. I really hope there will be no more frogging on this vest. I could have been finished a long time ago without all the frogging I have done. Ugh....

I am really trying to finish my Thanksgiving towel by Thursday. Not that it matters this year as I am visiting rather than hosting. Still, I don't want this hanging around until next year. I just have back-stitching and a bunch of "Gobble"s.
I can't see the stitching at all on this at night no matter what light I use, so I can only work on it during the day. Of course it is pouring rain today so stitching is going to be a challenge. Almost there.

As for reading, it is just not happening right now. I would rather work on my crafts for Christmas. Of course, I am perusing my recipe books and magazines for Christmas ideas. I will be hosting that holiday and making numerous cookies.

I am joining Ginny for Yarn Along again this week. What are you knitting/crocheting? What are you reading? Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are up to.

Thanks for stopping by!

I once made two right handed gloves....and same with the fronts of sweaters when I used to knit sweaters in pieces, now I knit them top down and have eliminated that. Glad you fixed it quickly!!
