I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

For countless months, I had been knitting the 80 squares needed to assemble Ron Weasley's knitted blanket to give to my daughter as a graduation present. It was an epic feat and at times I felt it would never be finished. Remembering all I had to do was knit whereas she had to finish college (at least the first four years)...well, that kept me going! I was so through with it that there are only three pics.  Cheesy

And a sight I never, ever, no never want to see again.
