Going For Gold

When last we left off I was showing you the blanket and it looked something like this:


It then grew...


And grew a little bit more...


And it kept growing and growing...


And then when all the pieces were laid out it looked like this:

And then came the seaming. Oh the seaming... and then what happened? It turned into one of the most amazing knits I've ever accomplished.


Its permanent home is now The Knit Zone. Just makes you want to curl up on loveseat and catch a few zzz's huh?

Just to give you an idea of how many hours this undertaking took...I've calculated the time.
It look me roughly 101 hours to completely finish this project. Knitting on the train to work and back. Knitting and seaming during lunch breaks. Then once home I would make dinner and knit from 7pm-12 if not till 1am. Get up and do it all over again. Labor or love is and understatement. I then wore it all day Sunday at Stitches Midwest. It was like a badge of honor to wear that sucker. It was my flag. My Olympics. And I won Gold.
