Notes

making a circle this time

8/11 - Ready to start Round 30.
8/29 - Ready to start Round 73.
9/2 - Ready to start Round 85.

I can’t believe how much I still love knitting this, even the second time through!

9/4 - Ready to start Round 105, but have some repairs to make. Feh.
9/5 - Repairs required some tinking, but it was only one round, so it only took about 30 minutes to get back to where I had been. Ready to start Round 107 (with no mistakes this time).
9/16 - Changed to US 1.5s on Round 113. Ready to start round 120. Through first skein and started on second. I really hope I have enough thread…
9/17 - Ready to start Round 132. I hate working the twisted stitches on the big flowers.
9/18 - Starting round 134.
9/22 - Starting Round 137.
9/29 - Starting Round 152.
10/2 - Finished Round 154 and ready to go back to regular chart. (Thank you again, Nintu, for the extra mesh chart - it’s awesome!)
11/4 - Stalled for a while after reaching the Tedious Rounds and realizing I’m going to need to order more thread. Ready to start Round 170 - it’s the home stretch!
11/5 - Ready to start Round 175, but out of thread. More on the way from Lacis any day now…
11/9 - Thread has arrived. Worked two more rounds, and am starting Round 177. Almost to the endless bind-off!
11/13 - Finished! It looks like a giant cotton jellyfish.
