Over the hill

Well, Beowulf is halfway done (give or take half a pattern repeat, which is 8 rows). Oh, also not including the tapered ends yet, as I have no idea how long they will be. They (and the potential tassels) are sort of bonus inches, I'm figuring the tapers will be about.... 5 inches apiece, and I have no idea about the tassels. I think mayhaps I will knit those 8 rows, hit the halfway mark, and then cast on for Ms. H.'s piano gloves.

I just want to finish now! I'm well over halfway done, but I still have 152 rows (plus ends) which equates to 4864 stitches. I can likely finish in 3-4 days. Maybe. If I get left alone for a few hours every evening.
