Here’s the finished front–in need of blocking as you can see.
Thanks to neighbor Jean for the use of her computer.

Please excuse the following, but I can’t resist sharing a cute story with you. Especially since I am knitting a “cute” sweater, I am particularly vulnerable at the moment.

In honour of the emerging giraffe, the boy lined up all the giraffes in his possession and declared it a Castle Cake.
It took me a minute to decode what he meant.
Cavalcade. As in a procession. A parade.
It’s a word from one of his Thomas the Tank stories.
I am still chuckling.

Castle Cake. heh heh.
