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!


  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. You'll be done in no time because you'll be hanging out with friends, laughing and having a great time. I love the way Fly Away turned out!!
    Enjoy your evening and your weekend, Mary!!

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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!


  7. Love the new banner! Happy weaving!

  8. 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!


Thanks for the feedback!
