This year's knitting and spinning has been a season of plowing forward, without a lot of instant gratification casting on and finishing. I've been getting a bit of flack from a certain person who doesn't think sixteen works in progress is reasonable, so I have poured some energy into finishing some of those WIPs. This post is photographic evidence that I am nearing the finish on yet another large project that has lingered for a good while. It was supposed to be a Christmas gift several years ago until a request usurped priority. This year, the request by the intended recipient was for a circular lace blanket in the spirit of my Leaves of Grass, and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to pick up where I had left off.
It's not instant gratification, but it feels good.
