I tried. I even stayed home today instead of heading to knitting just so I could knit for the extra hour ( 1/2 hour each way). I had a really really good time though I was not nearly such nice company as my group of knitters.
But no matter how much I busted my buns, I did not finish.
Just a short strip of the the lace edging remains to be knit.
I can already tell that I am going to be really pleased.
