The End is Near

Not the end of the world, but of the knitting penance. This is page 1150 of War and Peace, mile 21 of the marathon.

Ombre blanket, first ball of white

We’ve finally hit real winter temperatures with real snow here in Pittsburgh, and it’s fueling a sudden mad desire to finish this darn thing so I can curl up under it. Other than the Hederas, which I’ve been sneaking a few rounds of here and there, waiting for classes or meetings to start, this is the only project I’ve been working on.

I’ve doubled the blanket’s size since I started working on it again this fall. I’ve also done about two stripes in the last three-ish weeks of knitting since I got back from my parents’ house after break.

I seem to knit a lot faster than I used to. When I first started this blanket, I could only do about three rows in an hour. Now I can do five. I’ve got about 75-ish rows to go, so roughly 15 hours of knitting.

I’m going to finish this thing in February, yes I am!
