Knitting Olympics: Day 14 and Day 15

Here are the promised blocking pictures (notice Laska the cat helpfully supervising the blocking). The pattern suggested blocking out to 27 x 80 inches, but that just seemed a little too big. Final approximate measurements are 24 x 70 inches.

The stitch breakdown:

  • 111 stitches cast-on
  • 18 seed stitch edge rows
  • 422 pattern rows
  • A total of 48,840 stitches
  • Finished knitting while watching the US Men's Curling Team take home the Bronze medal - Go Team USA!
