Argggggg!!!!!

Ok, so I got down to the last six rounds for the trim yarn today and I was very excited--I'll finish the body today! Yes, I held such high hopes until I started knitting with boucle yarn, double-stranded on size 8 needles, around the bottom of my hot air balloon. It was the longest six rounds of my life! I started the bind off, but only got one quarter around before I had to stop myself to go to bed. This is like the ultimate torture--so close, but...well, you know. And the worst part is--it looks really good! It's worth the hassle!

I should have update pics tomorrow night. I'm going to finish this part in the next 24 hours if it kills me.

ooh, kim, I can't wait to see your pictures. I guess you're furthur along than me. I can't knit on it now, I have a more pressing project to get done first. But I'll be there soon. Can't wait to see your pictures.

Kim, I echo your thoughts exactly! The longest six rounds of your life is such an understatement.
It took me from Sunday night to the Friday morning to get mine done. The sleeves are plain sailing after that.
