Update on the blanket

Hecate always likes to help me photograph any WIP that is big enough to need my bed as a back ground, she inevitably gets in the way either before or during the photography!

The blanket I'm working on is growing but with hindsight knitting the squares together whiel I make teh mitred ones isn't a great idea as it is already getting quite heavy and awkward, it's going to be 5 x 5 squares and I'm on the 9th out of the 12 patterned squares and have actually started the fourth mitred square since this picture was taken on Tuesday.

I've just spent 2 days clearing more of the junk out opf my flat that has accumulated while I was depressed. I have no real choice but to crack on with that as fast as possible as my landlord wants to install new central heating very soon.

Luckily for me my big sister spent Thursday with me helping me to get more done and dealing with the heating company's surveyor for me as I get flustered by strangers in the flat, the cats just find the highest position they can in the flat and watch, unfortunately my preferred option of hiding under the duvet doesn't really work in the grown up world!
