Ribbing done, umpteen gazillion rows of colorwork to go

Ivy League ribbing

It took two nights to do 25 rows of the ribbing. I'm hoping that the straight fair isle sections go a bit faster!

On the upside, I'm liking the color combo a lot. And I'm getting perfect stitch gauge (!). My row gauge is off (on the loose side) by about 0.1 rows, so I'm not going to worry too much about that. No, now my worries will center on running out of yarn - given the pattern sizing, I'm knitting the bottom half at a size 41.75 and the top at 37.75 (let's hear it for big butts and small boobs!). I've got 230 yds of each color. It may be a white knuckle trip to the end!

Hundreds of stitches of ribbing did seem to take forever! Grandma is still in good spirits. Thanks for asking.
