I can tell by this sunflower's progress that fall is around the corner. (My eldest took the lovely photo of one of our garage sunflowers).
The sweater's progress is a bit slow over the last few days (not enough knitting time or knitting opportunities like car rides and waiting in line) after a good jump over the weekend, but I'm getting there! The sleeves have, like the bottom edge, a picot edge to be completed by turning up the hem and sewing it down.
I'm not sure if I can have the embroidery done before my September 9th deadline (Kindergarten starts the week after the other kids at our school), but I feel pretty confident about the rest of the sweater, barring any mishaps! Wish me luck!
