Yarn along- it's all progress

Joining in with Ginny at Small Things.

Well, after thinking about the granny stripe blanket, and pondering lots of different solutions to the oversized problem I decided I would play it safe, and just continue with it as it is, it will just be extra snuggly!  So, in order to get it done in time for Christmas I have to do at least a stripe a day, which is fine if I don't have anything else to do, but that never happens does it!  Anyhow, I am managing to do it, and if I skip a day (like Monday when I fell asleep taking Sophie to bed!) then I am making it up at other times. 

As for reading, I have fallen in love with this book. It is just my kind of thing.  Short little snippets that I can pick up and savour.  I do not need to be able to concentrate for long (5 minutes at night and I'm asleep!), but the wisdom held within it's pages is retained, and I can apply it to my days, which at times can be anything but peaceful!  If you have never read this book, I seriously recommend it.

  1. Blanket is looking good, great that you've worked out a stripe a day to get it done. I hear you on the time to do things - I think I would like a 72 hour day to get all the things done I'd need and like to do!

    Good book choice too, I do like his books too.

    Lol, I'm trying to do a stripe a day on the Granny stripe too but have kind of stalled the past week or so. Reading Thich Nhat Hanh too.
