After two and a half hours of binding off, I have bound off sixteen of the forty-eight wedges in the pattern. Yeah. Maybe I'll finish tomorrow. I'm using the traditional crochet cast-off used on doilies. It's basically slip stitch. Chain seven loops, then 'pick up' three raw stitches from the edge onto the crochet hook, work those three with the next slip stitch, then chain another seven, repeat.
Over and over and over and over and over and over.
It's a good finishing method, allows for a lot of stretch at the edge. And it's faster than a sideways knitted-on edge. But GAAAARH!
I didn't hit the champagne last night. We didn't have any in the house, we're trying to save money, and my liver and the knitting didn't need it. But I really wanted some.
I'll probably be busting out the sweater I need to finish, today. The body is done to the arm pits, and it's being knit on size nines. We'll see how fast I can do it. It's in the round, seamless, so once the knitting's done, it'll pretty much be DONE. Here's hoping I pull it off.
After that, I just need to batik ten yards of fabric. That won't take long at all. Hah.
