My little bit of this big World

Second half

I still have a bit of most colours left from this 3rd round, this yarn really does go a long way. I am now using these bits up and starting the 2nd ball of each colour.
The blanket is now really heavy, and very warm, I love to snuggle under it as I am working on it.
It is really quick to work up, simple stitches, which I do most evenings whilst hubby watches TV, plus the odd occasional afternoon, with all this rain we are having, and all the Christmas shoppers we are not going out much. I am not reading much this is filling my time, it's a labour of love.
The film yesterday was Fantastic Beast, the crimes of Grindlewald, we both enjoyed the film, there were only 6 people watching it. After we popped to M&S, where I purchased a chocolate log, it a tradition in this house, the use by date was good, but we always have chocolate logs Christmas day for tea. Plus fish and chips on the way home, perfection.


  1. Your blanket is looking great and working up very quickly, you'll have it finished in no time. Glad you enjoyed your day out yesterday. We always have a Chocolate log too, we don't like Christmas pudding, Christmas cake or mince pies so it's a good alternative.

  2. Your blanket is so lovely - your wool basket is like Mary Poppins bag - just keeps on producing!

  3. Blanket is gorgeous and I can imagine snuggling under it.

  4. WOW! Your blanket is really growing at quite a pace. All activity has ground to a halt here. John came down with a stonker of a cold and now I have it. After the terrible flu I had back in January I'm feeling really scared in case I get it again. Prayers and bible reading are helping to keep me calm and to cope with this awful dread. I know it's just a cold and everybody's probably got it, but it's so scary. Enough self pity! I'm so glad you enjoyed your film and all your preparations are ready. Best, Jane x

  5. The blanket looks great. You really are clever.

  6. I think your blanket is looking good.
    Glad you enjoyed the Fantastic Beast film.

    All the best Jan
