Hand-to-Hand Aran Cardigan front neckline unvention, first effort. Unsuccessful, but not unworthwhile. I made my decreases from a certain point in the middle of the yoke by doing an SSK at the KTBL stitch between the "magoo" cable and the little cable on every RS row. It's not enough. I could start the decreases earlier, do them more severely, do them very severely and then taper off, do them in combination with some other yet-to-be-determined thing...
Weekend doings (besides further trials in unventing as time and yarn allows): My sister Karen and her son Daniel are coming tonight -- her husband and youngest son are dropping them off on their way to a hopeful weekend date with some salmon at the end of a hook on Lake Michigan. My dad will also be a guest -- tomorrow night -- unless plans change last-minute (they often do). This weekend with houseguests is one of the reasons for last holiday weekend's cleaning jag. It's still not perfect, but oh well; it never will be.

Y'all know by now that Cara's having a baby, right? Ann & I are hosting a baby shower and you're all invited! Well, you soon will be. I'm the virtual host -- there's a password-protected (-from-Cara) blog we can all post to -- and later, when it's time to open presents, Ann's going to serve cake! I'm getting the blog thing pretty and all the details figured out, and invitations will soon be ready. In the meantime, if you would like to participate -- and can agree to protect said password (lest Guido need be dispatched to break your
knee caps knitting needles) -- you can send me your name and email address to be put on the list -- email* or comment and indicate whether you'd like the ability to post as well as read the baby shower blog.
