A long knit gone wrong

"What's the longest you've knit?" my husband asked me the other day. An awkward question, maybe, still kind of appropriate considered the fact that I worked 632 sts on it's most making the Hemlock ring blanket.

The better question still would be "What's the longest you've knit that didn't work out the way it should?" since apparently I worked the beast on too small needles. There is no way I'll be able to block it into shape, it's way too tight. Lesson learned; Gauge is of no importance when working lace. Work rather too loose than too tight.

And you know what - having endured the 87. round, I will not frog. I'd rather start over with fresh yarn.
