A Hundred Ends to Go.

...and then Fly Away is finished.
I've been thinking of it as a million, so actually knowing it's a much smaller number is making me feel a little better. I was hoping it might even be a two-digit number, but I did the math: 16 squares with six ends each is 96 plus four from the border equals 100. I plan to take it to the shop as soon as I finish up here, knowing the company will make those ends go faster! (my other option, which I honestly just discarded this morning, was to simply work here at my kitchen counter with a bottle of wine, a needle and scissors... I feel good about choosing the other option, but know for sure there will be at least a glass or two of wine this evening to celebrate!)

Also, thanks to an early morning walk at the park with Lauren, I was inspired to update the blog for fall. This view is one of our favorites right now - the wild abundance of those blooms makes me smile every single time.

...ok, procrastination time is officially over. Let's go!

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend...and please, feel free to procrastinate a bit if you need to. I give you permission!

I kind of like weaving in ends, but I guess spending 24 hrs. on a round trip road trip to bring Fly Away to me isn't a very effective use of time (especially in Labor Day traffic!) Wishing you enjoyable time at the shop and a lovely long weekend!

Oh that Bonny is a sweetheart! :-) Have a wonderful weekend Mary and congrats on finishing Fly Away. You could celebrate by watching Fly Away Home! A sweet movie.

I hate weaving in ends. Doing it at the shop will make it be more pleasant, I'm sure. Wine will also help, both during and after when you celebrate!

That is a very nice blanket in spite of the ends! I just found out I'm going to be a great-aunt, so I'll be looking at some baby knits. Have a wonderful weekend!

Love how Fly Away turned out, 100 ends notwithstanding! Glad you opted to have the wine, wherever! You have a super great weekend, too! All sorts of goodness awaits. Love your new header, too!

I actually find weaving in ends to be meditative . . . kind of like weeding or deadheading or winding yarn. (But I can certainly understand why not everyone feels that way.) It's a lovely blanket -- and will be a real treat for that little Charlie!
