It's the first, and I didn't quite make 60,000... in fact I think I only hit half that, but whatevs. 30,000 stitches is still a pretty sizable accomplishment considering I'm graduating in 2 weeks (or so) and I've been busy with finishing all my classes up. Only 6 papers left! At the moment I'm knitting up a Christmas present, so I can't post pix until after they get it.
A friend does want a pair of mittens for his wife and himself though, so I'll be starting those soon. 'Til then!
