Cool autumn weather finally blew in to Long Island last night. Since we have had such beautiful warm (hot!) weather recently, I have yet to change the bed linens to their winter counterparts. Thus, last night was a little too chilly for a summer blanket and lightweight coverlet. I did happen to place the large afghan shown below at the foot of the bed a few days ago. So hubby and I pulled it up and it kept us quite warm and toasty all night.
That is a queen-size bed that it is covering. There were a lot of granny-squares to crochet.
I made this afghan in the 80's. I still have the pattern. It is from the 9/9/86 Woman's Day magazine. It still looks pretty good, doesn't it?
I'm joining Ginny's Yarn Along today. What are you knitting/crocheting? What are you reading?
Here is the update on the Barn Jacket I am knitting.
If you look real close you can see that I bound off for the armhole shaping last night. That took a leap of faith for me as I have yet to really master that skill. I think it went quite well and I'm pleased with the result. Now I have another 9 inches of the back to knit.
I am finally finished reading Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman. Although I like the movie, I realize that I just don't like this author's writing style. Not that the book isn't quite interesting but I don't enjoy the reading.
I am so happy to be moving on to Susan Wiggs' The Ocean Between Us. I have yet to find a book of hers that I don't devour. First, I have to renew it at the library though because I got so bogged down by the last book.
Thanks for stopping by!
