The blanket is now just about 12 inches high and sitting on my dining room table. I managed to work on it a lot last night.
I brought KG's pillow today to help forestall any developing hand/wrist/elbow problems. No opportunity to knit on the train or PATH this morning. I did start to re-wrap a ball of yarn my dog had made a mess of. Now, I only need to get the dog hair off it!
