Three Skeins Full

Knitting not only relaxes me, it also brings a feeling of being at home. ~ Magdalena Neuner

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted about my various blanket clubs. I thought this week, I would change it up from the MM20 update. (Okay, the real reason is it gives me another week to make some progress on MM20 projects.) Grandma’s Log Cabin is coming along nicely. I just finished block number seven and the third full skein of yarn. Yes, there’s quite a bit more yarn in this blanket already, but only partial skeins. That will change as this grows with each new block.

I could stop here and call it a lovely lap blanket, but I think I want this to be huge in all it’s purple glory. I’ve been calling it Purple Rain or Prince now that I have all the colors in action. To say that I love this blanket is a bit of an understatement. I’m infatuated with this blanket’s purply goodness. This next block has 208 stitches and 132 rows. I suspect I might run out of yarn well before I’m ready for block eight.

That would give me a chance to work on Grandma’s Log Cabin II aka Little Boy Blue. I’m just shy of half way on block one for this one.

One nice perk of working from home still, I can put my container garden out to sunbath when there’s a sunny morning or afternoon. Some plants we leave outside to help transition going into the ground, while others will only be grown in containers. It did feel a little odd moving what appeared to be a pot of dirt around. When we moved the plants last night, the British Hubby noticed some new growth! It will be two weeks on Thursday since I planted this using these instructions. Our first onion sprout! I think we can use this to create several new onions or one new one? Okay, I’m really not sure what happens next. I’m off to do some research. If anyone knows, please comment below.

This week, I caught Burt napping with his sock companion. He’s a fan of socks. What’s not to love about knitted socks?

Hope your week is going well. Stay safe, stay strong, wear a mask and Black Lives Matter!
