How many years will it take?

I started a baby blanket for Jack back in December 2005. April 2006 rolled around, blanket still unfinished. Two other babies have entered the world since then, blanket still unfinished. Now we have friends who are expecting their first baby in August. Do you think I'll be able to finish this blanket before then? I would actually need to finish it by July 22. The photo above shows how much I have finished so far, plus 4 rows I recently knitted ... about 45" wide and 15" high (114 cm x 38 cm).

Today, I discovered that Libby is having a Knitting Olympics warm up. Take an old WIP and finish it in 17 days. Sounds like a great motivator. So my goal now is to try to finish this blanket by July 6. Better get to it cuz it takes me about 15 to 20 minutes to work each (220 stitch) row.

You can do it!! Go for it now that you have motivation. It's so pretty it would be a shame not to finish it!

happy knitting :)

Marie, I have so many blanket patterns collected but know that I will never finish one, so never start.
Good luck!!
