Failure Is NOT an Option!

Rouen Cathedral

"The pursuit of peace resembles the building of a great cathedral. It is the work of a generation. In concept it requires a master-architect; in execution, the labors of many."
- Hubert Humphrey

I don't know about peace, but I have a whole new respect for those who built the great cathedrals.

Eight whopping charts

And one border later...

Have I bit off more than I can chew?


To quote Winston Churchill...

“We shall not fail or falter; we shall not weaken or tire, Neither the sudden shock of battle nor the long-drawn trials of vigilance and exertion will wear us down. Give us the tools and we will finish the job.”

But I DO think I'll call it a design day and do some easy, relatively mindless knitting on Protopopov!

Now THAT is what I call an option...

However many charts, it's looking stunning. I doubt you have overreached--your talent spans the universe :)

I echo the previous sentiments. There is no way you have bitten off too much. 8 charts!! Should we start ordering the yarn now?

oooh, it's divine. i'm a cathedral addict too. i always loved my art history classes best when we went cathedral-ing. one of the earlier things i ever made with wool was a giant afghan of the Rose Window (from annies attic) many years ago. luckily, my taste has improved and i can't wait for these to be ready. i love charts.
you are a genius.
