I Think I Can, I Think I Can . . .

I kept repeating the motto of The Little Engine That Could to myself, as I knit, yesterday.  But, obviously, I live in 'la la' land  because, there was no way I was going to  finish Pumpkin Pie last night.  Thank goodness for movable goals. 

Originally, the goal was to wear Pumpkin to work last Wednesday.  Last Wednesday became this Wednesday and now,  although I am absolutely sure I can finish it tonight,  - I think I can, I think I can  -  not likely will it be finished in time to block and dry before 9 am tomorrow. I'll move the goal to next Wednesday. 

By my estimation, there are 22 rows to go before I knit the neck trim. 
22 ever-decreasing rows at that.    I think I can, I think I can.     Ever fond of throwing wrenches into the mix though, I've decided to fashion a square, front neck while at the same time keeping the raglan shaping for the shoulders and the back.  My expectations  at the moment are 22 rows to victory or defeat number two.  Tonight will tell.
