It is like watching paint dry

Progress as of Friday. I sadly do not have many more rounds after this picture was taken.

You know when you are knitting something and you get a case of “just one more row”? It will keep you up for an extra hour may make you late for an appointment. It  also can be especially troublesome when you are knitting stripes because you want to see what is next.

Well in the case of this One Big Granny Square Blanket I think I  have hit the “Dang, these rows are really long!” stage.

Each time I start a new stripe it is taking over 2 hours (Yes that is right you heard it here) 2 (freaking) hours! .It’s a completely lovely project, but  my mind wonders how much longer I will be working on it.

Another sudden realization that hit me is that while I am going to blast though a ton of yarn ( I am using 14 skeins on this project). I am  going to have left over yarn. The left over yarn might be enough to complete a whole new “Mad Hatter” challenge (which frankly I think I am done with this one for this year).

I need to keep truckin’ on this project. I am sure I will get there but it sure is starting to become painful ( not physically). A case of cast-itis is hitting hard and I think it is a virulent strain. I might have to give in, because  the speed of watching this grow is hard. I need to remember that I did give myself permission to work on whatever I wanted this month (since it was vacation heavy) so I think I will keep double crocheting until I finish this blanket. Arghhh!!!!
