Milestones

Thanks for all the blanket/afghan suggestions - keep them coming!  I still haven't settled on one.  I've started 2 so far and both have been abandoned as I haven't hit on the right yarn/pattern combo yet.  I made a trip to the new John Lewis to buy some yarn at the newly opened Westfield Stratford mall on Monday - but was defeated by the other 700 million people who also decided to check it out that day.  It was busier than the last Saturday before Christmas on Oxford St.  Crazy.

In the meantime I continue to make slow and steady progress on the Princess. With projects like this I keep motivated by focusing on small milestones - goodness knows the end seems too far away to be achievable.


I've just finished row 110 - so I'm halfway through the 220 rows of the wide border charts.  For the time being I ignore what's left to do after that!

I am in awe. :-D I've had the pattern myself for a long time, but just haven't plucked up the courage to start it. I will just watch yours grow instead, I think!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you can come back for the last day of our "blog party"! so happy to visit your blog. I clicked on the photo of your rose coat...and my jaw dropped to read that you knitted it! Gorgeous. I will have to pass this on to my daughter who is an art student and the knitter of the family.
