My 2010 North Carolina State Fair afghan is, at the moment, creeping along at a snail’s pace. Instead of progressing at smooth pace, it is instead lurching along in fits and starts.
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.
