Weeeellllll, sometimes. But usually no. What took this so long was that I had a lot of setbacks, didn't knit on it for weeks at a time, and just plain had other things I wanted to knit first so it always came last.

There are folks who could have gotten this knit up in a few weeks. But it isn't a race, so I never let stuff like that worry me. :)

Don't let how uber-long it took me to finish this to scare you off knitting it -- it's a beautiful pattern.

Thanks for commenting!! :)
