Amidst a very sad weekend*, I finished all of the knitting on the tangled yoke cardigan.

It just needs some ribbon and jewelry to finish it off.

Up next is holiday knitting, and I’d really better get zooming on that. My list, as usual, is gigantic. Also as usual, I’ve forgotten all about the holidays until November. Wish me luck!

*(My aunt Terri, Lois’ eldest daughter and my dad’s older sister, passed away today at the age of 60. We found out she had cancer a couple of weeks ago. If you’re willing to send some warm thoughts, prayers, positive energy, etc. to my family and especially my grandfather, I’d greatly appreciate it.)
