Franket Tuesday

This is where I'm at on the Franket. (Finn's head included for scale.) The tiny bit of blue you see next to Finn is the start of Block 8. We will not discuss how far off the plan I am at this point. The Olympics end Sunday evening and the Ravelympics end at midnight PST that night (which is 2 AM Monday Morning here). I'm not saying I'm not going to make it yet, but I will admit it doesn't look good. Caleb suggested that I make the Franket smaller but Mickael is 6'3" - not really a candidate for a smaller blanket. Block 8 is to be the same width as the milk chocolate block at the top (Block 7) is tall. It's no lightweight, and it's more than 200 stitches across each row.

On the other hand, I tell myself that if I don't get it done by the end of the Olympics, I've still done a TON of knitting. When it's all finished, it will have used 4 sweaters' worth of yarn and considering that when I started it was about the size of 1/2 a sweater, I think I've done pretty well. In the meantime, I'll keep on knitting...

Thanks for including the dog head for scale, I honestly wouldn't have realized otherwise how huge it is - WOW! Kudos to you :-) (Also, now I wanna make one...:-D)

I am so glad you included Finn - I really had no idea of the scale and it was (forgive me) much smaller in my mind's eye. You've done so much on it - GO YOU!
