fun stuff 06/16/15

the teal scrap blanket is still on the needles.
i think i'm past the half way mark.
the ocean breeze cools our evenings down quite a bit, 
so knitting a blanket is still a pleasure around here !!

 i'm still working and struggling through this 
illustrated and abridged version of moby dick.  
gosh...melville can be pedantic at times !!!
but i am determined to get through it....

i've also picked up a wonderful french conversation workbook...
june is a very busy month around here...but ten minutes a day is doable 
what are you knitting? reading?
care to share?



  1. Wow, the blanket is really coming along.

  2. Absolutely loving (!) your blanket. I've been looking for a project to take up on our summer holidays...something like this might just fit the bill because I could take up just a handful of scraps each time we go and continue on where I left off. Thanks so much for sharing your progress.

  3. The blanket looks really, really nice!

  4. The teal blanket is going to be like wrapping a warm sea around you! It's looking great. I'm about to start a cushion cover with all my yarn leftovers - it's fun using so many different colours in one project.

  5. I know I say it every time, but I love that blanket and the colour is fabulous.

  6. I admire anyone who tackles Moby Dick. I've tried a few times and I cannot get very far. And I have a degree in English literature, for goodness sake! I am interested on whether you decide it is worth reading in the end.

  7. I think I said something similarly last week, but I do love how that scrap blanket looks. The colors you're using look great together.

  8. Good for you on sticking with Melville that is awesome.
    I should send you my blanket to finish knitting, it is in time out right now due to the oppressive heat!
    Your blanket is looking wonderful.

  9. Beautiful blanket! Coming along really well. That cover of Moby Dick is a wee bit scary! hehe

  10. every line you add it just gets more and more gorgeous!


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