In a burst of effort, I hit the finish line this morning. I'm really am that excited, I feel all trembly. I need to take a break before I cut the steeks. I like to steek naked, that is, without sewing the knitting, because the Shetland wool doesn't really need reinforcement and it makes for a more flexible edge.
It occurred to me at the end, as I was flipping this thing around on my lap, that I would have been done a lot sooner if I were a smaller woman.
