I have been knitting this blanket for what seems like forever, and even put it aside for a while, but when I got the news that my friend's granddaughter had been born I had to get it finished pronto. It is a very simple pattern, just garter stitch, and then the slightly fancy looking but very easy border is knitted separately and stitched on. I am really, really pleased with the finished article. I decided to make a little cardigan with the leftover wool, and I think it makes quite a nice matching set. It has all been parcelled up this evening ready to post it off to little Libby Rose tomorrow.
I discovered a new magazine this week, Homemaker. This is the first issue and I am loving it! It is a lovely mixture of knitting, craft, interior design, cooking, and all sorts of other bits and pieces. I might even have to subscribe, I will see how the next couple of issues go first. A friend recommended Stephen King's On Writing to me today. I've had it on the shelf for a year or two and have only browsed through it, so I decided to give it a go. I also have a book here to read for my book group, but as I have until 28th November and I don't really fancy it, I am putting that off.
