Finally!

I'm so happy!  After almost three years (I just looked up when I started this....it was April of 2012!), I'm finally finishing up this seemingly never ending throw!

I started the i-cord bind off last night at knit group.  I love how the i-cord edge looks.  And, it's so cool how nicely it turned the corner!


I should have it done this weekend.  It's a bit hard on the hands because the final pattern rows are horizontal and the i-cord is vertical.  It takes pressure to keep the needles turned the right way to knit.  So, I have to give my hands a break every so often.  And, the ending i-cord is equal to four rows of knitting.

I'm so excited!  This epic project will deserve a nice long photo shoot when it's done.  Stay tuned for a post of the finished throw!  Wooohooo!
