For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb

latest stitches

It's happened again. I'm in an 'I want to simultaneously make all of the things' phase,  where I totally can't finish anything. I've been neglecting the orange jumper, and have promised Mr P that as soon as I finish the back of it I'll make his second mitt. Er, you know, those mitts that were meant to be for Christmas. The less said about that the better. And then today I found an adorable baby project that I can't wait to knit, and I actually have some yarn for it. I mean, how often does that happen?  Surely that means I have to cast on right. this. second?

I'm just gonna kick back and enjoy feeling excited to make stuff. The one thing I have been diligently plugging away with is the use-up-any-old-random-pinkish-yarn-from-the-stash granny square blanket. Just because it's sooo easy to squeeze in a square over lunch or make a little stack in front of endless Dr Who episodes (we're watching from Eccleston onwards, currently in Donna Noble territory). 

Anyway, here's how the blanket's shaping up. Right this second, we're on 97 squares. If you were thinking 97 squares would make quite a sizable blanket, you'd be sadly mistaken. The journey continues.   

One, two, miss a few

Yup, that really is our carpet under there. 

Are we nearly there yet?


  1. What a beautiful blanket! I love your color palette.

    And it must be something in the air - I've been having that same inclination to cast on everything! The excitement of a new project is always so fun and energizing. And when I really think about it, I make things because I love to, and it doesn't really matter what order I finish things as long as the process makes me feel happy and fulfilled. Just pay no attention to the overflowing WIP basket behind the curtain... :D

    1. Thanks Cory, those squares keep coming. I'm looking forward to seeing it finished! And still feeling that urge to make stuff, which is good I guess! :) x

  2. Wow, this looks great! You can do it :D

    1. Thanks lovely, it's getting there. I reckon I might be over halfway now! :) x
