Home stretch....almost!

I got an email for an update this morning, so here it is...

Bottom Band - Done. Looks good.

Front Band - Done. Pulls up too much, not enough stitches. Blocked it, still pulling too much. Will pull it out, and redo.

Left Sleeve - Done. Blocked it last night and I think it'll be good.

Right Sleeve - will pick up and do tonight. Hope to make it through that AND some of the re-work on the front band.

Ends - Most of the ones internal to the jacket are gone. Will still need to do the ones that have to be sewn into the band seam.

Closure - Need to work on my frog...still trying to determine the color, but should do so really soon, since I'll need to make a couple of feet of I-cord.

I do think I can still get this done by Saturday. Have been steam blocking parts of it as I go, so the final block shouldn't be too hard.

And as you've all heard, Kelley is standing by to do a photo shoot this weekend.

Then, the question is, do I take a weekend off, or do I immediately cast on for my NEXT deadline project? (A surprise/gag shell/vest for my boss that is due by 6/24).
