I worked on the petit point a lot during that time. I worked on the rug last night for about an hour and a-half and maybe got 1/2 sq inch done.
I miswrote earlier. It's 42 stitches equals 1 inch linear. So there are 1,764 stitches per square inch. I doubt I even got 1/2 square inch done thinking about it. You stitch blocks of the same color, starting with the light colors and progressing through to the darkest, so it's really hard to figure out how much you've done square inch wise.
