Inch by Inch

I knew this project would take me a awhile but... we are creeping along. I am having a lot of fun working away on this. because I'm decreasing now I have to pay attention to try to get the pattern to line up so it is a reasonable challenge for me so far.
When I was working on the ribbing I was 2nd guessing the colours. I decided to make the ribbing solid and only change the contrast colour and I'm glad I did but you can't really see the colours together until you get into the pattern.
I have been reading on Ravelry about other people working on the same pattern and someone ( I forget who) suggested starting the ribbing on the smaller size needles to keep it from curling and I am wishing that I had done that. Well wishing that I had read that note before for I finished the ribbing that took me a whole day to do. I'm not going back now! I'm hoping blocking will be a good solution and not....more drastic measures.
Grandma is still in the ICU at the hospital. She will be there at least a few more days unless she has another episode which will make it longer. We aren't out of the woods yet but she is looking good and feeling positive.
