down Mexico way

Thanks for all the lovely comments on my sweater. Unfortunately I won't be able to wear her where I'm heading--off to Mexico City for a meeting and some sightseeing. Not exactly sweater weather there, I'm told.

This message is particularly for anyone sending me a swap-related package--if you send it and I don't respond with squeals of delight, it's because I don't actually have it in my greedy little hands just yet.

Back stateside on the 15th. Hasta luego!
