The last few evenings have been depressingly chilly so I've only wanted to work on the blanket, which keeps me nice and warm while I'm knitting *laughs* I'm thinking that I might add a couple of blocks to the pattern, to make it a bit bigger and use up some more yarn *grins* I'm not following the pattern dimensions, so I think it should work, but I'll wait and see once I've finished the original blocks.
I started a new book this morning, Popco by Scarlett Thomas. It's actually been sitting on my bookshelf for months and months, but I haven't fancied starting it. This morning it jumped into my hands ready for the bus to work and who am I to argue with a pushy book? I'm only a couple of chapters in, but I'm enjoying it so far *smiles*
