546.  Five hundred forty-six. That's how many stitches are currently on each row of my Citron  project:
(matchbox cars are all the rage in the babysitting venue these days...)
Would you just LOOK at them all?
Oh. My. Gosh. It takes a loooong time to knit a row.  I have only brought this on myself since I decided to add two repeats to this pattern.  I had a lot more yarn than was needed and the project as it is ends up rather small.  So, why not make the most if the yarn I have as well as making it bigger, right?

And 546 won't be the largest number of stitches.  In the next, and last repeat, I will have 642 stitches on several rows.  Six hundred forty-two.  I already said I was a little bored knitting this and it may only get worse. On the positive side, except for 3 of the 20 rows I am repeating, this is very easy knitting and good for in front if the tv. So, on I will knit. And knit.  And knit.  And knit.....

Also, it is so hot here, we have resorted to this to keep the house cool:
I have to fix this sideways thing!! Anyone know how?
Reheating leftover pizza on the grill.  It worked tremendously - nice crisp crust!
