Fits and starts and the long view

My 2010 North Carolina State Fair afghan is, at the moment, creeping along at a snail’s pace.

I have six rows completed:

I should have taken a picture of the back to show off all of the ends that are woven in and trimmed, but I didn’t think to do that.

Today I fully expected to get more done than I did. In theory, it was a perfect day for getting things finished, and I did finish putting away laundry, loading the dishwasher, unloading the dishwasher, uploading photos to flicker, and I made myriad trips up and down the stairs putting things back where they belong.

While all of these led to a more ordered home, they got me no closer to my goal of completing my state fair project.

I did, however, make a decision about how much of my precious vintage green yarn I would include in the project, and I trimmed the ends that remained after attaching row six to the body of the piece, but for now, I have to continue to take the long view, and work to make sure it doesn’t extend past 3:00 pm on October 11, 2010.

  1. Looking good!! Must say I have not seen this square pattern before. I am not a big fan of tails so would probably not make them. But still looks very cool!

  2. It does require a certain zen attitude to do the ends. That and my trusty Clover chibi and an obdurate nature get me through it.
