ravellenics day 10

Well.

I’m in better shape than I’d thought.  But…

Tonight before bed I decided to do a quick ‘n dirty wet block to really see where things stood with my Jeanie.  I need to get to 66″ and stretching it out on my lap wasn’t helping me see the true length.

I even dropped the column stitches that don’t get dropped until the very end, (doing a yo over them so I can keep going), and pinned the whole thing out.

The good news?  At 114 rows in, I’m at 22″.  That means exactly 1/3 of the way done.

The bad news?  To get 228 rows (the remaining 2/3) done by Sunday night (the closing ceremonies) means I need to knit 6.75 hours per day.

Um.  Yeah.

And that doesn’t take into account the upper or lower border, or the slightly longer cable rows that occur every 8 or so.

*sigh*

I WILL finish.  But I won’t medal.  I’ll still be knitting when all the other competitors have packed up and gone home.

  1. It’s looking great though! Maybe next Olympics you will find a project that is finishable in time.

  2. I didn’t finish my big project either. Boo! I think our lives are just too crazy to finish big projects in such a short span of time.
