Lest you think...

...I'm not Knitting, well, I am!

I've been knitting like a madwoman, at least, as much as my achy wrists and fingers will allow.

I've been concentrating on the Hemlock Ring Blanket mostly. I felt like I was making amazing progess for a while there. Then I got to row 62. This row and the next four took me a full 15 minutes to do each row. By the time I got to row 72, each row was taking me 20 minutes. Why? There are 312 stitches per row. This circle is getting out of hand. It'll get worse. Row 82? 376 stitches. Not looking forward to it. there are a total of 87 rows for this blanket. I have instructions to make it bigger, but I don't think I'll be able to handle it. Throw size will be just fine thank you.

I feel like I'm on a treadmill and going no where really fast. I try knitting quick, then I tense up and then my arms and wrists and fingers all go kaput and I have to stop.

Anyway, here's a few pics of the lovely brown monster. The second and third pics are the most indicative of the color.
