Here it is coming undone onto the ball winder. I took a sick pleasure in watching all those stitches (and all those hours) unravel so quickly. It was oddly therapeutic.And here it is all stacked up in center pull cakes of heathery goodness.
Speaking of which, here is an updated view on the progress of dad's HRB. It's going super quickly, although I'm getting a little bit bored with it. I'm already to the suggested end of the chart, however I'm definitely going to be working the extended version and maybe even beyond that, if I can do the math to get all the repeats correct. I know it's supposed to be a lap blanket, but my dad's not a small man and if I knit it the size it's supposed to be, it would look like he was trying to cover up with a washcloth!
