Progress on this project is slow but steady. Though it is hard to tell from the picture, it is now about 14 inches in diameter, so I am half-way to the size I want, though probably only a third of the way done in terms of time. Since it gets bigger with every row, each round takes longer and longer. While I love the pattern for how simple it looks, and how impressive the results look, it is kind of a cruel situation that the closer you get to the end, the longer it takes. I bet the DH can figure out how fast one needs to knit so as to beat the subsequent increase in time requirement for each row, but that may be way more physics than we need in a day!
