Despite my determination to finish Sweetie Pie before getting to Miriam's tomorrow, I have not worked on it, except to sew on the button, since I finished the back.
The onset of hot weather following weeks of rain have led to an excess of gardening and this has resulted in a flare up of the arthritis in my hands. Truthfully however, I have just been in a slump and haven't felt like knitting. If I were determined, sore thumbs and finger joints would not stop me, they have not managed to do so in the past.
I am not worried however. Forced knitting time in airports and on airplanes will come to my aide. It is fairly certain that I will be finished, or very close to finished by the time I see Miriam tomorrow afternoon. I will try to remember to pack the camera (do it now Mardel) so that I can take a finished photo.
I am not taking my computer on this trip so I will be out of contact until Tuesday, or maybe Monday night, depending on how tired I am and what awaits on my return.
