…and I’ve crossed the half-way mark with my 25 projects.
- Finished – 13
- On the needles – 6
- Waiting to be cast-on – 6
I’ll be working on my second SNAIL MITTEN later today. I have enough to keep my wrist warm at this point…
I worked on the first mitten during my January Knitting Marathon, it’s fun to see the pattern progress and I’m hoping I can make significant progress today.
I PLAN TO START RIGHT AFTER WORK. THAT SHOULD GIVE ME A GOOD 4+ HOURS OF KNITTING TIME.
After a few hours, here’s where I’m at…
Wow – it doesn’t look like I made much progress, but if you look CLOSELY, you’ll notice the second white welt is done and I am starting the main pattern.
And if you look even MORE closely, you’ll notice those are TEENY TINY needles that I am using. Now I remember why it was slow going during January’s Marathon.
It’s this type of project that forces me into calculation mode…
- How many rows in the pattern? (79)
- How many rows do I have left? (74)
- How many rows/day do I have to knit to finish in 7 days? 10.57
So, 11 rows per day should do the trick. That will give me a finished pair of mittens by April 10th.
Of course I will be sneaking in some knitting on other WiPs during that time, just because you know me – I tend to get a bit bored working on the same thing.
