A Bit More Knitting
Remember my plan to make baby blankets by knitting squares from scraps of wool? Well, it ran into a snag: turns out I can't sew squares together while reading a book. (I did try.)
So the bag full of squares just sat there glaring at me while I read and felt guilty. Eventually I'd had enough. I ripped out all the squares, divided the wool into a pile of light and a pile of dark, and re-knitted all of it. While reading.
Even the back looks nice!
I couldn't toss the squares I had managed to sew up. Unpicking while reading is only marginally easier than sewing while reading. So I simply picked up stitches along the borders and finished off the blanket. Doesn't look wonderful, but it's okay.
Three blankets made and four books read.
