Nothing to See Here, Move Along

I got almost no work done on the Franket yesterday. I did get some laundry done, I made copies for Caleb's teacher, I drove him to his afternoon activities, I cooked dinner and then I knit 4 rows. Two lousy ridges bigger is all I got done on the Franket. No point in a picture.

I've adjusted my goals for this to what I'd like to call "realistic." Reality has very little place in my knitting blog, but sometimes it just sits up and smacks you in the face. The reality is that there is no way this blanket will be finished by 2 AM Monday morning (midnight PST on Sunday). Ain't gonna happen. On the other hand, I do think that I can finish the Big Blue Block by then. So that's my goal. Finish the Big Blue Block, I will be amazed at what I've done, but no medal for me. I'm OK with that though because I know that I've done a whole bunch of knitting and I should be proud of that.

I'm going to set my finishing goal for the whole giant blanket/monument to garter stitch for 2:00 CST on March 12 because that's the afternoon Caleb gets out for Spring Break. Starting on Monday (March 1 - can you believe it's already almost March?) I won't be working on it exclusively, so you'll get some rotation on the blog through what I have on the needles.

I may not be able to blog tomorrow because Finn has to go back to the vet for a booster shot (Leptospirosis) and we're going to check his weight and see how he's doing on that front. I think we may be close to the weight the vet wants him at, but we'll know for sure when I get him on the scale. Have a great weekend!

The nice thing about knitting is sliding due dates. Sometimes things just don't get done as quickly as we think they will.
