Eleven Hours.

Eleven hours saw a part of the vast expanse of ultra-light mocha finished. Down to 3 skeins left, which won’t be enough to finish, but it will get me most of the way. Current Hours: 959. Skeins used: 139. Click for full size.

    You seem to be working furiously on this project now. I look forward to seeing the final product!

    Just regular work days. Today’s has already started. Other bits of life were keeping me from regular work for several months. Basically, when I can get full days in on this, nothing else gets done.

    I love the texture you’re getting there. It’s pretty fantastic. Also wow, how very organized to keep track of hours and so forth! I never know how long something has taken me. When people ask, I’m inclined to just tell them how old I was when I was finished. :-)

    Thanks! When you run your fingers over, the frisson you get going from the big knots to the tiny knots is sensual. I’m pleased.

    I have to keep track of something like this, because hours factor into the final price. Normally, I don’t have a clue about time, I’m lucky if I know what day it is. I don’t own a clock, outside of my alarm clock. I didn’t keep track of how long it took me to do the dragon quilt, and I’ve been repeatedly asked how many hours it took. Answering “I dunno” just makes me look like an idiot, so, I have several different planners -- one for the tree quilt, one for the peace quilt, and one for Affinity. So far it works well enough, except for all the times I forget to mark down my start time.
