Slowly but surely, I'm making progress with my blanket. I am on the second big block I will be sewing on to the other side. It feels good to be seeing the progress as I work (large #10 needles help with this a lot). And the other thing is my extra yarn around my place is slowly disappearing!)....I usually listen to public radio as I knit after work. I have been so very happy with the Chile miners (all 33 of them) being safely resuced this past week. This was the happiest news I have heard in years (most of the news these last few years have been so grim, unhappy and sad). Happy knitting to all whatever you are woking on.........Cullen.
