The Dancing Cranes are soooo beautiful!
You have done a wonderful job!

In fact, looking at your work inspired me to go to the pattern source to print it and add it to my "to be done" list.
I hadn't really thought about how many stitches you used - but looking at the pattern at elann.com, they say to cast on 300 stitches! ... OMG.

I shall repeat myself - O.M.G.
I had been thinking that 225 (or even 223) stitches were a bit much.
It wouldn't be something to just whip through any number of rows at one sitting. In fact, I would be lucky to get one row finished in any one attempt.
Why did YOU cut back on the stitches called for? (I suppose the number you used made a preferred width.)

How can I plan on breaking a leg - so that I will be home-bound for a few weeks?
