Something that happened 3 weeks ago and has gone unmentioned until now

So the Elsebeth Lavold cardigan was completed.
Button bands picked up and knit, collar short-rowed, buttons sewn on, seaming completed, ends sewn in, wrapped up and given to the birthday girl herself, on her actual birthday, no less.
(You may notice the absence of "blocking" in the above list of finishing. That's because I did not block it. Neither after or *GASP* before seaming. Yes I am going to a kind of knitting hell, and it will be an odd and rather itchy place filled with people who are sticklers for details.)
So she was thrilled (the mom aka sweater recipient) and I was able to finally accept the title of "daughter who knits for her mother."

These are terrible, terrible photos.
I was not permitted to take "action shots," as it were, so these photos should be seen more as an example of my utterly horrid photography skills, and less as a decision to give my dear mother a gift of crap for her birthday.
I mean, who needs crap for their birthday?

Beautiful sweater! I've yet to try the complicated knotty cables she designs. Way to make us all feel guilty about the small things we make for our moms! The bar has been raised.
