fun stuff 06/09/15

my teal scrap blanket...
photographed on my knitting adirondack chair.
this blanket is knitting up really quickly (compared to the fuchsia blanket)
i think it is because i'm really comfortable in this side of the colour spectrum,
so combining colours of blues and greens are a breeze.
i'm reading an illustrated abridged version of herman melville's moby dick.
i found this version by jan needle in one of the little free libraries in our neighbourhood.

i remember attempting to read melville at university...
i think i made it to the chapter where queequeg and ismael become roommates 
(not very far at all...hehehe)

i wanted to read the story before seeing the movie,
have you seen it yet????
what are you knitting? reading?
care to share?

joining  frontier dreams and small things


  1. It looks amazing Erica! I am knitting a milo, for a friends new baby, and a hat for the little man. Reading, just started A Long Time Gone by Karen White. Have a wonderful Tuesday!

  2. Your blanket reminds me of the beach, the colors are perfect summer colors!
    Good for you in rereading Melville, I have a hard time with him.
    Happy Wednesday!

  3. Oh what a lovely blanket! It looks like the ocean water in Moby Dick!

  4. It really is looking gorgeous, the colour combinations are a delight.

  5. Love the blanket :-) It is so pretty in that blue.

  6. It's growing! I love the colors in your blanket, Erica.

  7. I really like these colors together! You did a very nice job!


thank you for your kind words... they really do make my day !!!
