Thanks for the nice comments on Mack's stocking! I thought I'd post a photo for scale -- the thing's about as tall as he is! I'm so happy that it went home with him yesterday.
Birdsong requested a photo of the Mango Moon scarf for the Red Scarf Project that I'm Knitting Unto Others in a comment wherein she also said, basically, that she'd be prayin' for me as I ride shotgun with Madeleine, a greenhorn behind the wheel. Well, there's the progress on the scarf up there -- I plan to finish that off today during football -- and there's a photo of Maddy driving me around. She got a little time in on residential streets, country roads, and the highway, and executed a Y-turn (with help because my suggestion was rather ill-timed). She also parked at the grocery store and I don't think I've ever parked so far from the door before in my life!
Hm, something seems familiar in that scarf photo... Look what's back for a tweaking -- it's Shirley Shrugs!! Did I mention that one side was a wee bit longer than the other? I need to fix that. I also need to shorten the underarm seams a bit, as Mom finds it a little too tight right now. She'll try it that way for a while, but said she might possibly have me un-do the seams altogether so she could wear it as a shawl. ; ) I really wouldn't mind that at all -- I think it makes a wonderful, warm shawl. I plan to post more details about my pattern modifications, particularly the short row shoulders.
Last night, I went to the movies! Casino Royale... it was great! It was the perfect movie for my mood and very, very well done.
