The Finish Line

I totally nailed it! I finished the last of my CB squares last night, 5 days before the end of the Olympics!

Here are the final 20 squares. My only concern is that I miscounted (even though I've counted them many,many times) and I will have one or two less than the 80 squares I thought and will have to make more.

As a reward I cast on the Citron shawlette. Imagine me, knitting a project that, as Kay of Mason-Dixon knitting says, is "one of those viral knits that all the cool kids are knitting". Me, who just finished the squares for the "30 year old bedspread". Which I pointed out to DD#1 won't even fit my bed which is a queen size, the bedspread is a regular full size. I guess my bed put on weight over the last 30 years! Middle aged spread!!!!
