Today (Friday) I finished the sweater for my 26 year old son. I began it the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It is drying out from blocking right now. I was fortunate that I didn't have any problems with it. Will post photos soon! The cable pattern is one of my favorites. It looks a lot more complicated than it is (to non-knitters). You pretty much glide along most of the time.
We have heavy fog today which might affect travel plans for our youngest son who is flying home from Phoenix. He leaves tomorrow morning so hopefully the fog will lift before his flight arrives.
I have a lot of cooking to do between now and Tuesday. My plan is to make most of the dishes ahead of time. The menu is:
Beef Brisket (make day ahead and just heat up)
Sweet Potato Casserole
Cranberry Sauce with Ginger
Potatoes Romanoff (Mashed Potatoes with Cheese and Green onion)
Biscuits and Rolls
Chocolate Chip Cake
For dinner we will eat left over beef sandwiches with chips, etc.
I am also making some breakfast and lunch meals to pull out of the fridge. Better get busy now that the sweater is done!
