My intarnetz were totally clogged all day yesterday, so I feel like I got a lot of knitting done, but looking at the pictures it doesn't really seem to be going very fast:
So I made a spreadsheet of how much I need to get done every day (if I knit the same amount every day) to be on track to finish by the 28th.
I did this by figuring that since there are 154 rounds to be knit and the area of a circle is πr^2, the area of the finished beast will be π(154)^2. Then I figured that every day I should knit 1/17th of the area of the circle, so the number of rounds to be finished with on a given day is the square root of the day number over 17, times 154^2. Yeah.
Date Round to finish
It's currently Feb 16. I am currently on round 52. Damn. Maybe I should spend less time writing spreadsheets and blog entries and more time knitting.
