One Whole Year

It's finished.


Last week I told you how I added a lifeline just to make sure I had enough yarn to complete another pattern repeat. Turns out, I probably could have done another one beyond that.


I thought about it, but I figured I had been working on it long enough. It was time to finish the thing off.


I figure it's wide enough.

According to its Ravelry page, I started working on it on November 11, 2018. I finished it November 11, 2019.

Yup, it took me a whole year to finish.

Well, I wasn't only working on it. I've had other projects going, too.

(Since the question came up... I finished eight pattern repeats. Each pattern repeat contains eight rows. I cast on 480 stitches. So, that's a grand total of 30,720 stitches.)

Yeah, I'm done. And happy to be so.

    1. Me too. Although, the plan was always "knit until I run out of yarn".

  9. It really came out pretty. Not as infinite as advertised, though. :P

  10. It's pretty! It's done! Now on to finishing another work in progress? You do have an excuse, though, as you have to pause your own stuff to fulfill orders.

    1. I'm in the weird moment of most of my WIPs being done. But there are a couple things that I can work on.

  11. It's lovely! And you've still done far better than me. I have some projects that have been going for a number of years I won't disclose (too embarrassing)!

  12. Wow! That really is BEAUTIFUL! Worth every minute it took. I'm still working on Christmas gifts, crocheting and sewing projects, plus my Cricut... I'm starting to feel a bit like curling up with a good book but we press on, right? It's what we do. :)

    1. I, um, haven't even started this year's Christmas presents. (This was for Christmas... 2017.)
