yes... it's another blanket
my needles have been idle lately,
mainly because the weather had been so nice for the past week...
and we felt the strong pull to be outdoors.
so this week, i thought i would show you one of the blankets
that i had finished prior to the blue one.
i'll call this my retro blanket because i followed a retro colour scheme-
colours that i remember from my mother's and aunts' kitchens...
lots of browns, yellows. avocados and oranges with pops of other colours
the blanket was very inexpensive to knit, because i used only left over yarns
(my neighbour was clearing out her yarn basket and had a ton to off load)
and balls that i thrifted or unravelled from old scarves or sweaters.
although my needles were idle,
i have to confess that i have been reading so much lately...
with so many on my list from book recommendations i've picked up from other blogs.
i'm passed the half way mark of nerburn's neither wolf nor dog and it has
only been a few days since i picked it up from the library.
it is such a beautiful read, nerburn writes with such honesty and wisdom
and it gives the reader invaluable insights into first nations' philosophy.
what are you knitting and reading lately?
care to share?
