It has been since I last bought yarn!

One of the directions for the mystery blanket's pattern is to find a way to track 226 stitches because you have to track smaller stitch counts along the way and it will all get confusing if you don't track it.  Normally I wouldn't follow this kind of instruction, but this time, for whatever reason, I did.


The added bonus of keeping track of the blanket stitches this way is that you know exactly how many rows of stitches you have left.  There are 26 more rows to go.  TWENTY. SIX.  The end is near.  I have a very visual reminder that I will, in fact, finish this damn project.  (At least this portion of it.)

Here is what 200 rows of this project look like so far.  (Keen eyes will note I have recovered from the awful, AWFUL error and have moved on.)


I've decided to break down the end weaving in, so as to not die from the boredom, and reward myself by weaving in 3 ends- and knitting the next piece on the project.  Perhaps that will help the ends be less awful.

The other night I also had my knitting group to visit, and since the above project isn't exactly "travel friendly", I opted to catch myself back up on the May hat.  BEHOLD- a hat for MAY.


And that's about all that's happening here.  I'm hoping that 26 rows are going to go smoothly and problem free and I'm back here next week telling you it's OFF the needles.  We're so close people!  So CLOSE!  (Close enough that I'm dreaming about what I'm going to knit this summer... needs to be something easy, I'm going to need a break from this rat's nest!)
