Pattern 15

I didn't get as much knitting time as I had hoped to have over the weekend, so I didn't finish the charted section of Pattern 15.  Yesterday I sat down and I knit.  I knit and I knit and I knit.  Then I knit some more.  I kept knitting.  

I'm still 10 rows from finishing the charted section.  I have no earthly idea how long each row is, but they get longer every time I work a RS row.  I hope to finish those last 10 rows today, but I have more to do than just knit today, so I don't know if that will work out or not.  It's not that the design is difficult to knit (style wise, it's probably more similar to Scheherazade than anything else I've designed, but it's a completely different shape), it just takes some time to knit each row and RS rows involve charts, which must be marked with Post It tape* and kept up with as I go.

At some point I'll count stitches, but probably not until I get finished with the charted section, so I can include the information in the pattern.  Also, no point in scaring myself before I finish.

Oh I know what the feels like! The same thing happens to me with my knitting projects all the time.

I just hate it when I knit like crazy and then measure and find out it doesn't seem to be getting any closer the the required length!
