Progress - sort of

Thursday I was home with stomach flu, so I dug this out to finish.
Remember seeing it in the WIP inventory? Yup, forgot one. The knitting on this has been finished for over a year, but I really hate sewing seams, so..... The only problem is, for some unknown reason I had never counted this yarn in the stash inventory in the first place, so not only do I have nothing to officially "deduct," I added the 10 and a half leftover balls to the inventory, so I have managed to simultaneously finish a project AND increase the stash. Luckily, I adore this sweater, so that takes a bit of the sting away.

Since the birthday party is next week, Theo and I started our quilt battle early this morning,

and it wasn't until I convinced him that I REALLY wanted to get the bed made and would be very unhappy with a cat sleeping on the covers
that I was able to get any work done.

OK, it looks exactly the same as it did, but I can assure you that it is fully quilted & ready for the binding, which is tomorrow's project. After that, I am having a massive fling with some mohair.
