~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

10-28-2012 - a day late and a dollar short (or yarn in my case) - after searching around on Rav for circular projects with at least 370 rounds, I’m sure I don’t have quite enough yarn for this project so I ordered more today - I’ll have to wait to cast on til it comes…darn it!

11-02-2012 - glad I waited ~ a full pound (that’s 5040 yds!) of ‘ice blue’ yarn came today and now I can start… ~ but first, to choose a needle size…hmmm

11-04-2012 - slow going but so far so good ~ I’m on Row 27 and the tiny center flower is completed

11-27-2012 - all my holiday knitting is done so it’s just ‘me knitting’ from now til the end of the year so I sat down last night and figured stitch counts for the entire project so I can better keep track of my progress (am I really only 0.0228% done?!). The longest row is 2,096 stitches long…that’s only 4x as long as all the work I’ve done to this point! yeehaw :)
