A ribbed throw for the couch.  I started it last fall...and look, it's fall again.  Let's see if it gets finished before next fall rolls around.
I'm off to buy more yarn at Joann's.  This thing is hungry for more.
Half double crochet in back loops only, using Wool Ease Thick and Quick.
A hook the size of a baseball bat.
This one's a snuggler for sure.

Two cookbooks are on the way (I bought used copies), Delancey and A Homemade Life.  Both by Molly Wizenberg.  I can't wait to read them and cook something delicious.  You may have heard of her blog, Orangette.  Beautiful photos, yummy food.  I love finding new blogs.  I turn into an instant stalker, multiplying their page views by about a thousand. I found out about Orangette from this blog.  I spent a long time at that site too. 
So there you go, some weekend reading suggestions from yours truly.
Have a good one!


  1. Lynne your grey blanket looks so soft and snuggly and I love the colour and yarn. I've just been doing some ribbed crochet too, some small squares, working dcs (your scs) in the back loop only, and its been great to see how quickly they make up for a cushion. Not sure I'd have the patience to make a blanket sized one, but seeing yours looking so good maybe I should have a go.
    The books and blog sound good, will go check them out!

  2. Looks fab! I can only do one crochet stitch, (and can't cast on) so I'm going around a square getting bigger and bigger, but maybe it's time up learn another stitch!!!!

  3. Your yarn eater is going to be fantastic when it is done. Have fun with the new books.

  4. Hello Lynne
    That looks to be a real winter cuddle rug .....thick and warm. Trouble is you'll be so snug and comfy under that rug you won't want to move away! :-)
    Popping over to see those blog finds.

    keep well
