I’m making pretty good progress on my Coziest Memory blanket, the fact that it’s so addictive is certainly helping things along.
I’ve placed a marker at the very middle and I plan to work out from there so that it will be roughly square shaped.
It’s been a while since I’ve updated you on my Weasley Homestead socks – so long that I’ve actually finished them!
