Seventy thousand, five hundred and thirty two. I have been wanting to count the stitches in a completed sweater ever since Tiennie did it. And decided, with charts and rows, this was the sweater to count. Seventy thousand, five hundred and thirty two stitches. That is a lot of stitches, and a lot of "throwing". (I knit using the English method.) Amazing to think my hand brought yarn around the needle seventy thousand, five hundred and thirty two times. I think we should all give our hands a massage. Or at least a kiss.
Ruby is finished. Blocking as we speak. Photos soon.
