Started this past weekend, cast-on and row one ripped once.
Progress as of Tuesday morning.

Thursday morning progress shot.
The twisted stitch is slowing me down. I have to finish by 10/24 which is when B and I are going to VT again (Mom's birthday is 10/26).
This birthday is a biggie, 55. So, since the sweater doesn't have a closure (although, I'm going to have to do something about the curling edges), I've asked Ruth at Impulse of Delight to create a shawl pin for mom of her initial in a curlicue style.
