Speaking with my mouth full

More squares have arrived at the Stashbasket - many thanks to Karen and her next-door neighbour who also helped out. They are lovely and all perfect squares! The very good news is that I am now half way in my target of 100 squares (that means I have 50 squares for the mathematically challenged amongst us - I had to use a calculator to work that one out!). I have decided not to sew them up until I reach the magic number, which seems like a good idea at the moment, but I think I'll regret the decision when faced with 100 little squares all needing sewing up! And then of course there is the matter of the border and whether or not to back the blanket...

Postie has been extra-kind to me today bringing a surprise parcel from Trashy, containing Brownies. Can you smell them? Can you sense the calorie intake? Can you feel the texture? Can you taste the chocolatey goodness? (There are eggs in these brownies and eggs are good for you, so there must be some goodness in there!) Absolutely delicious! Thank-you trashy!

I also received my latest copy of this today. It's very good - as always - packed full of interesting articles and lots of very wearable knitting patterns. I love the tank-top on the cover (though would make it loads longer to cover up the spare tyre so I don't look pregnant!) And the cable car coat, oh yes please, I'll have one of those. Oh, and that very small little neck warmer which looks a nice quick knit. Plenty to help Startitis get worse. Again.

Ooooh! Those brownies look scrummy! So Trashy can cook can she? That's useful to know!

P.S. hope you are feeling strong - I have FOUR WHOLE SQUARES for you to bring back from London on Saturday!
