I'm taking all that new yarn out for a test run and knitting a cushion cover before I launch myself into the blanket. Because, let's face it, the blanket may be a while. The couch was looking a bit bare so this ought to do the trick. I'm using the Nesting Squares Baby Blanket/Play Mat out of 'More Last Minute Knitted Gifts' as inspiration, and plan for a chunky garter stitch square for the back. Should be just the thing to brighten our lounge room.
My only hope is it doesn't clash with the new residents*. Though everything goes with fly larvae beige, I reckon.
I'm in between books at the moment, having just finished a second Anne Tyler novel, 'Noah's Compass'. Perhaps the in-between-ness can be attributed to the great stack awaiting my selection, including a few second-hand bookshop finds, some treats from the Book Depository and a gift from the GM.
Now, where to begin?
Wishing you a happy Yarn Along.
* The maggots appear to have finished their migration into our lounge room. I'm sure you'll agree that is a very good thing.
