Believe me, I celebrate finishing objects - usually because I have so many on the needles that it takes *forever* to finish one. This is "Goober" - at least in my mind - though the actual title of the pattern is, I beleive, 'Ocean Tide' - from on of the online "mystery" knit alongs.

Breathtaking. I can't even imagine how much time it takes for something that large and elaborate.

working "straight" - between

working "straight" - between 80 and 100 hours of knitting. [for me, at least - I swear some of the people knitting in these groups get them done in ridiculously short times. many post that they've finished the clue within 24 hours of it going up - even the later clues)

This particular one I started in mid-january. Most of the group finished a couple weeks ago. The pattern was given in parts - one a week for five weeks. The first couple of weeks it isn't hard to keep up; but I just don't have the concentrated knitting time for the latter "clues" to get them done in a week as many of the participants do.

this is the fourth or fifth shawl I've done from this designer -- for me part of the fun if seeing how someone else puts things together.

MM,

Fully understand about having many projects going at the same time. I futilely attempted to remain focused on one project start to finish without working on another...didn't last long.
