12 rows per day?

Can I complete 12 rows a day EVERY day in order to finish Zoe Mellor's Hearts & Stars blanket. Quill's birthday is the 31st August, I need 24 hours blocking time... And well I just don't know if I've got it in me. I'm slow on the best of days and this blanket is full of moss stitch, double slow for me.
I started this when I was pregnant with little Quilly and then I could only knit one row at a time. It made my tendinitis play up HORRIBLY!!! I think it would be special to give it to her on her first birthday.
Last night I knit a strand of my hair into the middle of one of the love hearts, I thought that was such a loving and sentimental statement, not my husband though, he was watching me like I was crazy!

Well, wish me luck everyone.

Another one bites the dust...

I think I'm actually starting to knit a bit quicker, I started this bag for my Mum about two weeks ago. Normally it would take me hours and hours but I've got it finished, and still been knitting other things as well.
So it's the textured backpack, specifically requested so Mum could use it while walking and still be able to swing her arms. She picked the yarn and all up I think it cost under $5- not too bad for a Nana eh?!
