My Tickled Pink Blanket that Rocks! I cast this on almost two years ago! And it is only maybe 25% done! I have two more skeins of Socks that Rock Heavyweight in Jasper for the border not even shown. They haven't been wound yet.

I have the best equipment! My signature circular needles that I haven't even really used yet?!?!

And of course, these gorgeous colors of Socks that Rock heavyweight! Go Team Blue Moon!!

I honestly am not sure if I can finish this. But, I'm bound and determined to try. And just how happy would I be to show this to Cockeyed and Ettamae at the Blue Moon booth at Stitches West all finished and complete!

But, just in case, I do have a project picked out for Team Plucky Knitters!

Happy Knitting Olympics!

Very pleased to see you finishing the blanket. Maybe I'll put down these socks and pick up my blanket too. Can't commit to olympic timing though ;0)

Good luck fearless friend :0)

So have you added up how many yards of yarn you have for the blanket. Just askin"!!!

Actually...forget it. I have almost as many for the Vancouver 2010 sweater.

We're both nuts!

You can do it! If I can ski for a million miles and not get paid for it, you can finish this gorgeous blanket!
