Today, when I was not celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday, I spent what time I had for crochet on the cookie-sheet gray cookie baby blanket that has eaten most of the month of November.
I had thought that because this was my second effort with this design that it would go more quickly than the first.
I was wrong.
Because I was determined to write the pattern this time around, and because I tried to be meticulous about documenting the parts of the pattern that are relatively easy to do, but very wordy to explain, it has taken me quite a bit longer.
But eventually, no matter how slow or how fast we work, many projects get finished despite us, and today, I came very, very close to completing this project.
Here is how it looked shortly before sunset:
There are still a few ends to be woven in, a border to be crocheted, and, as my cat has been watching over this project as only a cat can, a thorough blocking to be done, but of the many things for which I can be thankful for this year, finishing (and documenting) this project is definitely on the list.
