Anyway, it's currently blocking across my oldest's bed.
|It reminds me of chain link fence.|
So, it started out 72 inches long... and it's so long it is about 2 feet longer than the king sized bed as it blocks. No wonder this sucker was so heavy when I bound off the edge. I hope to get a picture when I give it to Dad, but we'll see what he's willing to put up with.
I am not as good with worsted and heavier yarns. I have chronic arthritis in my wrists and recurrant tendonitis from my teenage years, so when my knits get to be more than about a pound the knitting is actually painful. It may be part of why I enjoy lace knitting so well. I get a lot of mileage out of very little weight.
If you're looking for a fun read, check out this comment! I giggle and nod every time I read it, and I suspect every knitter goes through something similar while designing.
This weekend, I'll only be able to post on Sunday. Saturday, I have a standing engagement (which is surprisingly not knit related). So I'll catch everyone Sunday afternoon! Speaking of Sunday, you have until Sunday night at midnight to comment on this post and be entered in the giveaway. Winners will be announced Monday sometime after 7AM Eastern.
Have fun and knit on!
