Confession: I am bad at updating that widget thingy in my sidebar. See, when I launched the blanket countdown, I didn’t really think about writing a widget plugin thing so I can update it with just how many rows I’ve knit that day. Yeah, that would have made my life MUCH easier. I really do need to learn how to do advanced WordPress functionality, sometime soon. I’ve been a WordPress user since 2004, with a brief foray into Drupal from 2009-2011, so it’s sad I don’t know how to do a lot of things in good ol’ WP.
I HAVE been knitting the blanket, pretty much every day, for the past few weeks. Here’s what it looks like now.
Yes, it’s getting BIG. So big, in fact, that I can’t take a decent picture of the entire thing without draping it over the couch.
Still, I’m digging it.
I’m also looking forward to knitting a project I can carry in my purse, instead of a project I need to stuff as much as I can into the biggest knitting bag I own (which isn’t that big). PLUS, it’s been in the 90s the past couple days here, which is not normal for coastal New Hampshire. Knitting a gigantic blanket in this weather is the stuff of someone maybe not completely with it, but hey, I’m dedicated.
I WILL get this done, if I don’t melt first.
