Oh yes, ends. Ends and ends and ends and ends. In fact, I don't have an exact count, but there were over 1,000 of the little bastards.
I haven't really blogged about this piece yet, because it almost felt like talking about it would steal it's momentum. This is my Kaffe Stripe from Rowan 43. It's knit in Rowan Cotton Glace, and I have been knitting on it almost exclusively since the beginning on January.
Am I done?
Very close to almost. I've got all these pieces sewn together. The only thing left is to sew borders for the neck and panels, and ties. Easy peazy lemon squeazy. I should have a finished object picture for you soon. I'm really proud of myself for this one. Even after 3 months of going steady with this piece, I could still hold it at arm's length, drink in all the color and perfect stitches, and go "Damn." so I know it's love.
See, I told you this blog was still about knitting. And cats.
As an aside, I want to warmly thank everyone who has helped out the Champions of Cumulative Action in some way. Some of you donated, some of you spread the word by blogging this wonderful cause, and one of you even joined the team. Thank you, thank you, thank you :) 2,500 is a large goal, but being a part of this incredible community (heh, commuknity) makes it easy to count the drops needed to fill the bucket. Thank you. We've still got a long way to go, but what's the point of setting a goal if it's easy to reach?
All right, I'm going to bed. Gigi, you'd better be there tomorrow. I've already packed your shawl in my bag. See? All kinds of things to be proud of tonight :D
