Five more 

On a very rainy Monday I trotted along to my local wool shop and restocked. It’s the blanket which keeps on going! I did think I had only one or two more rows of silver to finish the body, but checked a notebook for my previous ripple lengths and decided it needs to be another 20 inches. I grew up with proverbs echoing in my ears, and currently: “If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing properly” is the one voicing itself again. Fine, it’s no hardship and I’m still enjoying the cosiness while I crochet. 

We are all Completely Beside Ourselves is the third book from my pre-Christmas grab and run library visit (see here.) I think it might be the weaker link, for me at least. I’ve got past the spoiler on page 77 and now I barely care. Before I was enjoying running theories about what might have happened through my mind, now I feel a bit ho-hum about it all. I’ll read a bit more and see how I feel by page 100! 

Last night we went to a preview showing of the film Lion – go and see it! It gave me goosebumps. 

I’m joining in with Ginny and the Yarn Along again.

  1. I absolutely agree with the “if a job’s worth doing” comment – that’s why I’m in the process of TINKing about 5 inches of 4 ply knitting!

  2. So glad to see and hear someone else battling with this book! I didn’t know there was a big spoiler so I wasn’t expecting anything and it was a pleasant surprise but on the whole I was disappointed. I did finish and it left me feeling pretty flat.
    So love this blanket.

  3. I hate reading something I haven’t read before but know the ending too -unless it is a history anyways – that ‘what new thing are you telling me’ kind of feeling! The blanket is looking good and doing it right is worth it!
