A New Song and More Blanket Stripes

I am finally making some real progress on 
the blanket!
At least three more stripes are needed before
I can work on a boarder.
As you can see, I am still on a Jan Karon kick!
Finished book # 3, don't yet have book # 4 so am reading 
#5 instead which is A New Song

I am pleased with the 'textured look' of this blanket...

My goal is for it to be a long lap blanket to sit curled up in
when reading a book and drinking tea.

What are you reading and creating?
Yarn Along with us!

that's looking really cozy. Are you going to do a moss border?

Thanks Oct. Rose!

Sarah ~ thanks!! I am looking forward to reading the new Mitford book! I find that as I am re-reading them now that I often need to hear the 'messages' there in. A blessing to have books to help us in our life and various situations. So nice that the series is special to you; they are dear to me too.

That looks very soft and warm. It's very important to have throws about. :)
