Sewing Together + Two Books


My blanket is almost totally sewn together!
I have a little bit left to knit on the bottom right
and then will make a boarder;
I am thinking, as I used 4 colours of yarn,
that each side of the border will be one of these
4 colours... 


I finally finished Cather's Song of the Lark
and am enjoying the restful read of

I hope to get a lot done with week on 
the blanket yet!!
Then I will have to think of what I will knit next...
I am thinking of doing a big
as the first one I made is very well loved.

What are you reading and creating?

The blanket is looking great! How are you doing the border?

Did you like Song of the Lark? I've got it on my long list but last time I tried a Willa Cather book it bored me to no end. Hmm. Laura Ingalls Wilder never gets old!
