Wow, thanks everybody

You're right: it did take a lot of persistence to keep at this. There were many occasions when I wanted to set it on fire, haha.

I'm actually making this for my brother. He's really into all gaming, including old school gaming. He is also considering having an art gallery in Louisville that's strictly old school gaming art and he thought knitting would be a new and cool medium.

I'm so excited about it now that only have 10 rows left! That's amazing, considering that there are probably 300 rows on it. Seriously, it's huge. I think 5 feet wide and 4 feet tall.

Awesome! and really cool. Congratulations on sticking with it - I too know that feeling of wanting to set a project on fire. But you didn't - good for you! Great job, nice knitting.

Wow, that's an impressive piece of knitting. If you don't mind me asking, what program did you use for making a chart?

So it might go on display as the work of art it is? Good.
