Finishing Friday But Nothing Finished

which Theo thinks is quite disgraceful.
I did finish the front of the cowl-neck sweater
and I think I moved the neckline up far enough so that the world will have to continue to wonder whether my belly button is an "innie" or an "outie." The sleeves have been started, so I'm hoping to finish it before the Ravelympics start on Friday.  Of course, I'm hoping to finish a whole dang sweater in 17 days, so I am hardly one to be trusted on such things.

I was really hoping to finish this fleece jacket today
but since this project had been started more than a year ago, there was a good hour devoted to finding all the various pieces and parts.  I think my original plan was to do some sort of decorative stitching on this somewhere, but now I'm almost wondering about some sort of embroidery? It's going to be a bit dull otherwise, don't you think?

Poor Theo.

A dull fleece jacket that's "done" is not such a bad thing. You can always embellish later, after you figure out what you'll be wearing it with most frequently, yes? I thought so, too. (Call me a faithful member of the FO-enablers club.)

It's going to be a lovely jacket. And if it were for me, I'd embroider it with something that would hide coffee stains....
