A-line Jacket (Half is finished)

The back, left front and one sleeve are finished, the other half is one the way.

She will be leaving before Christmas, so I quickly crochet these cup mats for them as a Christmas gift. They are all very surprised and excited to receive these unexpected gifts. It is too bad that I forget to bring the camera to shot the scene that they are choosing their favour one.

But lately Becky's been chased by dismal letters from Visa and the Bank - letters with large red sums she can't bear to read - and they're getting ever harder to ignore. She tries cutting back; she even tries making more money. But not of her efforts succeeds. Her only consolation is to buy herself something ... just a little something ...
