I sat down a few nights ago and thought I could finish it up after a few hours of furiously crocheting through my television-watching excitement.
(But on an unrelated note, is anyone else watching The Good Wife? Oh my goodness! Oh wow! Just wow! I'm clutching my yarn this season.)
It turns out reaching a height of 18" can take just a bit longer than I anticipated.
This isn't tricky, and I didn't have to rip back a mistake and start over. This is just taking a little while. I'm enjoying the simple pattern repeat, and the pretty teal blue of this yarn.
Not everything can be cranked out in the space of a movie. In fact, most yarn things take a long, long, long time. I tend to stick to smaller projects so that I'll have something to write about, but this is a really lovely cowl. I'm close to the end of this, but it's going to take a little while longer.
I think I'm okay with this. The pattern's not as short as I'd expected, but it is sweet.
