The blob

You are all thinking again with the blob and so it is.  

The blob grew to 4 feet and it is now officially like knitting an afghan.  It covers me well past my toes when I am sitting.  By the math, I have another 20 or so rows to go and I am going to stick strictly to the math of the thing.  I 'feel' it is long enough, but if you start a project like this, where the result is going to be felted and the plan is for it to fit, then you have already crossed to the darkside and made your deal with that devil, math.

I sure hop I can start a front today.  I am kind of looking forward to it!  Where this part is getting slow, the front will feel like speed knitting.  

I tell you, people think I don't live on the edge, but the suspense of this...

In between knitting the blob, I am knitting lace on another old project.  I think I will switch that out for the Still Light tunic I am working on.  That way I might still get all the things done that I wanted done before Christmas.

You are so right - "suspense"! - unbelievable to non knitters but so true!

Can't wait to see the shrunken blob. Such suspense.
