I finished the fronts on mom's cardigan...but I think the neck opening isn't as generous as I would like, so I'm either going to frog back 18 rows (about an hour of knitting) or just do the shaping on the sewing machine and then doing a faux crochet steek over the edge. Then again, what's 2 hours labour (x2 for both fronts) compared to the 9 months she carried me in her womb. LOL

I've decided that I'm going

I've decided that I'm going to do a rolled stockinette piping over the edge, so I can go ahead and do the shaping on the sewing machine, as the edge will be hidden, anyway... Hooray, less work! Found the posting when I started doing the fronts: 8 days it took to get the fronts done. Now I have to do Dad's fronts. That will be very fast, I think, as it is just endless stockinette. I might toss in some cables, though...I don't know....

Funnily enough, Mom didn't

Funnily enough, Mom didn't know she had twins: Were were incredibly small: I was under 3.5 pounds, and outside of a small birthdefect (gill slits~brachial cleft), I and my twin brother were very healthy. I think together, we were both just over 7 pounds...
