Aching for a Phiaro

I'm so close to being done with my Phiaro and it feels so good.

But I'm having some problems with the next step.

See? After knitting eight gajillion rounds on the Phiaro, I have bound off all the stitches that will stay and left the stitches that I will drop. The problem is I just can't drop them.
There are 107 stitches to drop. 107. and that's just around the top that's not counting the entire column of stitches that makes each of those 107! So much work. Hours of work. Rounds and rounds of work and I'm going to willingly undo it for the good of the project. If I had not seen Charmaine's Phiaro in person I may have decided that it wasn't worth the risk to undo more than half of what I spent hours knitting. But it is worth it. Now I just need to get up the nerve to :::gulp::: undo it!

Don't worry I'll post the end results.


Jerry and Princess have been chasing and attacking each other all over the house while I have been knitting the final rounds on the Phiaro and going through drop-stitch turmoil. But they sure have been having fun and look cute doing it!

The end of a project is usually the best feeling ever. I can imagine though how painful it would be to drop all those stitches. I was thinking about cheating and doing yarn-overs instead. ;)

I didn't realise you have two kitties!
