How long would it take you?
Well, the baby blanket I started back in January still is not finished and it is now due Saturday! :( I have had ZERO time to knit for WEEKS and I am about to lose my mind.

I'm trying to figure out if I have even the slightest chance of finishing it in time. It is 106 stitches across in feather and fan pattern, so K row, P row, F&F row (K2tog's and YO) and a P row. I have about 140 rows left. How long would this take some of you, just so I have an idea? I haven't timed myself, but if I remember correctly, I did the first 30 or so rows in one evening, but that doesn't seem correct. Any input would be appreciated!

Ed. It was on Knit 1, Purl Two, and they made it look like they finished in a half hour. Obviously, that isn't true, but since they used it for a show, I almost think it could be finished in a day or two, no?

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson

I could get it done by Saturday, but it would take several hours' knitting...

I'm guesstimating maybe 10 hours at a minimum...but I'm not a quick knitter.
