I am beginning to see that writing a blog in the winter is tricky if one doesn’t like using flash for photographs.
The light has been so bad today that even at it’s best I had to resort to flash to photograph the furthest I have got with the granny ripple blanket, my scarf and the yarn.
I have been working hard on the blanket since my last post inspite of life being busier than normal and after two days I had got this far and felt so pleased that it was coming out as I had hoped.
I am regarding this as a pleasant, relaxing, background project as I am starting it much too late for this winter. I have various other short term project that I will be doing as well over the next few months and of course there is the CAL but I will post occasional updates on the blanket’s progress.

Another thing to share with you concerns the scarf I made from the super chunky yarn my daughter gave me for my birthday.
When I first made the scarf this was how I wore it which made me wonder if I should have made it longer so that the weight would keep it in place.
However since I have been wearing it for real, I realise that as the scarf is so thick, the traditional knot method of wearing a scarf actually works very well and this way it is just the right length.

The last thing to share is that I have just taken delivery of some more yarn:
some colours I fear I may run out of for the CAL, white because I used most of it up making the snowflakes and two new colours that I want to use for an experiment in joining the CAL squares together. If and when I get around to that I will show you.
