It's Time to Start Thinking About Blankets

Carson throw 
This August has been freakishly cool here in North Texas.  Now don't get me wrong, we still have highs in the high 80's and low 90's, but they really should be triple digit highs right now.  So while I'm not ready to wear any of the sweaters I've knit just yet, I do realize that it will happen.  The temperatures will drop and the knits will be worn.  Also, working on the Carson Throw doesn't sound like torture at the moment, so I've pulled it out and I have a plan!

According to the pattern, I have about 50 rounds left in my giant blanket.  I knit on it all day Saturday.  It was all I worked on and I made some headway.  I realized that if I devoted one day a week to it (probably Saturday, since we're starting school Thursday), I could probably get it finished fairly soon.  At this point, each round is about half an hour.  After my next increase round, that will probably be closer to 45 minutes or an hour, so I'm not talking about a super quick finish here.  On the other hand, if I can get a day's worth of knitting into it every week (and keep Max from making a nest in it while I'm knitting on it), I think I can finish it by Halloween.  And that's without neglecting Caleb's homeschooling (10th grade!) and still doing Loopy Academy.  So get ready for weekly updates again.  By the time the temps really cool off around here, I'm going to be ready with a big, round blanket!
