nothing to do
posted by soe 9:21 pm

We’re spending tonight and tomorrow night in Leominster, Mass., the town close to where our friends Sam and Alexis are getting married tomorrow evening. It feels strange to lie here in the hotel room without anything pressing to do because I have spent the last six months not having spare time.

Every time I sat down, there was a knitting project to work on. And more often than not, I did. I diligently knit away for six months.

193 days (give or take).
2040 rows.
106,080 stitches.

And I’m done.

Thanks to Gramma, Rudi, Mum, Dad, the folks at Stitch DC and WEB, Karen, Shelley, Jenny, and the women of my knitting group (Sarah, Suzanne, Tracy, Marty, Heather, and Chickona) for all their moral and physical support as I worked on this project.

Photos and more information will follow after I’ve actually given the present to Sam and Alexis.
