fun stuff: nearing completion

 my pink/yellow/orange scrap blanket is nearing completion (only a foot or two to go ?!?)
i've been knitting these blankets to cover the size of a single twin bed but surprisingly, when i stretch them out, they will actually cover a double size.

my basket of scrap yarn is slowly diminishing.
soon it will be time to sift through the thrift shop bins for balls of scrap yarn 
and/or old sweaters to be unravelled.
 i'm in the middle of karen joy fowler's 
we are all completely beside ourselves

it is a really great read that i could easily spoil for you if i said anything more than that.

put it on your list  !!!
(if you're in the market for great fiction that analyzes family dynamics)

 what are you knitting? reading?
care to share?

  10. My blanket is only half the size of yours. I LOVE yours. Perhaps YOU are the one who started me on this pattern? ? With the seam? In the round?
