Fast forward to today and I am only 30 rows in with another 117 to go.
The pattern is quite a nightmare. When I ran the photo through knit pro 2.0
it didn't come out as clear as I would have liked because the photo was too detailed. So now I am spending quite a big chunk of time modifying as I go or pulling out the graph paper and fully reworking sections that are necessary but blurry.
I figure that to get this finished before Christmas I need to find at least two hours a day to just concentrate on this. All other crochet projects are completed until after Christmas so it should be fine. Right? Hopefully there will not be too many stuff ups along the way. I love how bright and gorgeous it is looking. Fingers crossed I'm up to the challenge. Wish me luck!
