Falling Short

Finally, we are getting the beautiful Spring weather we deserve after that bone-chilling winter! Michael and I spent Sunday going on a long walk around Jamaica Pond and the Arnold Arboretum. This is our go-to outing when the weather is nice and we both have off work. That means I didn't get much knitting done on Sunday, but on Saturday, I managed to squeeze in some work on the Cape Ann Blanket.

The whitest, brightest tree I've ever seen. It looked as though someone had spraypainted it.

Despite it being a gorgeous 60 degrees outside, some remnants of the snowy winter managed to survive. 

The blanket is coming along nicely! I love the texture from all of the cabling. It will make for such a lovely thick and cozy blanket. At first I was excited for being just about halfway through the 23 balls of yarn I planed to use, but now I am getting worried about running out of yarn. My target size was 45" x 60", and I'm not sure I'm going to make that 60 inches.

Close up on the cables.

Now, let me be honest, I haven't exactly measured it yet. I could be making a mountain out of a molehill. I haven't measured it yet because I'm too nervous that I'll come up short. Luckily I have the same bulky alpaca yarn in another colorway, which I can use as a "center panel". Although including this extra yarn would throw off my timeline. So much for making a plan....

I guess my best bet is to just measure the darn thing, right? I will force myself to measure it and decide tonight what to do.... Wish me luck!
