At Long Last...

"Little by little, through patience and repeated effort, the mind will become stilled in the Self."

-Bhagavad Gita

Mithril is finally off the needles for good & blocking. Thought I had her ready for testing in May, but had to pull back a bit & add some short rows to the front to get the shape right.

Will get her out to one test knitter in each size by end of week - whew...

I know many of you are counting the days and wish it was done sooner. Me too!

All I can say is:

Something like this takes time & patience & extreme focus (which is often hard to come by in a household where a 2 year old has taken up residence.)

Mama had WB all last week, so was finally able to get in several days in a row of nothing but thinking & knitting & frogging & thinking some more.

I hope you think she is worth the effort and the wait.

I do.

Thank you for your patience with this challenging & rewarding design.
