Had to post a progress pic. Still working on it, but I needed a break for a little while.
I missed a chance to Skype with the friend; his family threw a huge party, and everybody Skype-d with him, except us, because we were late. His mom told me that when they sang happy birthday to him (it was his twenty-first birthday) he kinda tore up. It'll be two years in January since we have seen him, and we won't see him anytime in the near future, and we missed our chance. It's kinda maddening.
I want to finish this and send it to him as soon as possible.

Oh, now that's some progress there! This is going to be a real treasure for your friend. You knit beautifully by the way. All that stockinette stitch--WOW!

So sorry to hear you missed a chance to see/talk to your friend on his birthday. Could you set up your own personal Skype call with him sometime? Seems to me you could get a lot of talking in that way without any distractions from other friends/family members.

That is going to be beautiful! I might need to take it on for my nephew newly in the military. I am getting started on one for him in his unit's colors but I know he would love this! Thank you for posting and keep on going.
