Still plugging away on the November Blanket. This thing is HUGE. I’ve got to up my daily row quota. For one, I want to make sure I’m done in time for Family Weekend and for two, I’d like to work on something else!! Here’s a photo from last night:
It is stretched out on our guest bed/cat perch. The cat loves to sit on those pillows and look out the window. The roof for the porch is right outside that window – and squirrels have the nerve to run across it all the time!! And birds land there!! Keeps a cat very busy protecting his house!
Anyway, you can see this blanket is big – and it’s only 57.5% finished!! For reference, that is a full size bed. I may need to leave out one pattern repeat. Need to think about this. I had to order more yarn . . . running low. This has taken 11 skeins of Puffin already!! I sent her a sneak peak picture the other day. She seems pleased and anxious to get it. That girl is always cold.
As for reading . . . I have put down The Ghost of Black Mountain and picked up “The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry” by Rachel Joyce. The University where I work has community “reads” and this is the next selection. So far, it’s very good. Harold Fry receives a letter from a former co-worker telling him that she is dying of cancer. He ends up deciding to walk all the way to see her – hoping that by walking he’ll keep her alive. Something happened between them years ago – only hints of it so far. Doesn’t appear to be a romantic connection – but I guess we’ll see!
