First sleeve on Oregon is done. I cut the front steek after crocheting the edges in order to try on the sweater for sleeve length. Fits well. It will be set aside a while since we're going to be travelling in our RV truck camper some and handling all those color changes is a bit much. I packed St. Brigid in Country Craft "Fundy Fog" color. It's up about 8 inches and I may try to make it a slightly inset sleeve instead of the usual box shape. Also have startd "Trinity", a vest from Lisa Lloyd's new book "A Fine Fleece". It's being made out of Encore so that it will be easily washable for my mom in an assisted living center. Nice bright red cheerful color.

Hope on our trip out west we'll bump into great yarn shops and meet new knitting friends along the way.
