let there be flare!
I managed to make it past the 23 rounds of 220 stitches. Now I'm on to 23 rounds of 276 stitches. That's only the beginning of the flare! But it's all worth it. It's looking pretty good. I think I might be able to finish it by the end of the month. I know that I'll have plenty of idle time in my journey back to Canada. So I'll be knitting away like a granny expecting quintuplets for grandchildren.
