It's Time to Start Thinking About Blankets
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!
