It’s been a very pleasant weekend. Yesterday I was walking along the lakeshore with Tai Chi Man and ds1 in the sunshine. I made dinner then watched a lovely movie for the second time – About Time – which involves time travel but not in a cheesy way, with an important underlying message and a triple-Kleenex ending!
I picked up the Grandma’s Knickknacks blanket and added some more squares and was just two short of finishing my goal of 144 squares.
This morning, we had to buy groceries, but afterwards I finished the 144th square! I am so relieved! I still have to add a border but this point has been nine months in arriving so it feels like time for a little jumping up and down. It’s about 45″ square amd I estimate a time investment of at least 48 hours so far.
We went out to lunch with friends, one of whom is leaving town next week, and she gave me some bits and pieces that she needed to clear out, including lots of sewing thread (very useful) and three balls of yarn. Loops & Threads Soft & Shiny (burgundy) and Velveteen (royal blue).
Now that we’re back home, I’m itching to start on that blanket border.
My only other WIP is this pair of slippers.
And this is a sunny photo of my Road Trip scarf.
Life is good!
Wow, that Grandma’s Knicknacks sure looks daunting. Beautiful but, daunting XD But I sure love that Road Trip scarf 🙂
Not daunting really, just one small square at a time. Join as you go, weave in ends as you go, and I could have just kept on going. However I’m a finisher at heart and this has been a WIP for long enough.
XD That ‘as you go’ discipline is something I really have to work on 🙂 But, thanks for keeping me inspired.
Just gorgeous, and such a big achievement!
