I cast on a new lap blanket for the Prayer Shawl ministry at church. This is the Ted’s pattern from Alice’s Embrace. I’m really a quilter, so the patchwork design appeals to me. I’m hoping it will be a nice project as we read through Hatchet in the evenings as a family. I just got Big Magic from the library. Hmmm. Not sure how I feel about this one yet. I love the encouraging tone, but it’s a little “out there” for me in some parts. (see: Ann Patchett story). It’s early days yet, but I’m interested in how it will unfold.
