I think you do everything from the first bracket to the last three times. Assuming I'm understanding the pattern right (I don't do cables often), I get 110 when I count the first row repeating that section three times:


1) { [P4, k2, p1, k1, p1, k2, p4], [P2, k4, P2], { [(slp 2 back, K2, K2 CN), (slp 2 front, K2, K2 CN)] x3 }, [P2, k4, P2] } x2

...

1) { [15], [8], { [(4), (4)] x3 }, [8] } x2

...

1) { [15], [8], { [8] x3 }, [8] } x2

...

1) { [15], [8], { 24 }, [8] } x2

...

1) { 55 } x2  = 110

I use Google Docs too!

I have a table at the top with the class/challenge names in alphabetical order (each name is a link to the full description below), a short description of the requirements, what project I made (or what I plan to make), whether I'm done making the project (because I usually wait and post more than one project at a time), whether it's a SPEW project, how many points the project is worth, total points (I usually fill this column out at the end of the semester), and the due date:

I make the row background light purple after I've posted a project and light pink when I've missed the deadline for a project.

Below the table I copy/pasted class descriptions, challenge information, OWL/NEWT information, etc. Smiley

OWL Subject & Option: Transfiguration, Option 1 - Practice your vanishing and conjuring spells by taking a large amount of supply and crafting one piece.
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Neat Ripple Blanket
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: I've finally completed my ripple blanket that I started last September. I used this pattern for the blanket and the border pattern on this page. It's large enough to cover a queen sized bed, so I used up a lot of yarn - specific yarns are listed on my Ravelry project page.

Brief Description: For Alchemy class, I used this recipe to make Nutella fudge. After adding the liquid Nutella mixture to the powdered sugar, it solidified very quickly. Next time I make it, I'll sift the powdered sugar when I measure it, so there aren't any clumps in the finished fudge.
