Unraveled Wednesday | The Blanket's Tale (part three).

Joining in with Kat and friends to share yet another update on Sara's blanket.

The most exciting thing about this week's story is that I'm now halfway through the fourth (of five) section; the end is creeping into view!

Along the way, we finished reading Paris in the Present Tense with the Kindle propped up on the counter. It was only the last 100 or so pages, but it was a great ending. We also finished A Tale of Two Cities. I listened to this more away from the house (walking, running, driving), so I'm guessing the story was a little hard to follow. Still, I gave both books five stars and that certainly counts for something!

There was still plenty of time with Holly.

But a lot more TV than usual - thanks to all the rain and our current obsession with The Americans. We are now nearly through Season 4 and I've knitted through every single episode so far!

We're also caught up with Patrick Melrose. As I expected, the third episode is a lot more hopeful than the first two and I'm looking forward to see how it wraps up (there are two more episodes to go).

And on Monday, we even watched a little HGTV. Sara and I share a love for all the shows ... and there was a marathon of Beachfront Bargain Hunt on that afternoon. We didn't guess right once; hopefully once the blanket lives with Sara, it will do better.

Happy Wednesday!

P.S. one more WIP shot - of the blanket's backside. The gradient is easier to see here!

I love your/Sara's blanket more every time I see it! Thanks for sharing the back side; I was having trouble seeing the gradient on the front, but both sides look good!

Love Sara's blanket - so pretty and, like Bonny, both sides are beautiful. Well done!

Well Sara doesn't have cable so now Beachfront Bargain Hunt. ;)

You will have to explain in person how one side is a different color than the other one.

I love that blanket! That is definitely a work of love! My reading queue is again at the super charged category! I am thankful for my ear pods, but I predict that Steve will be sick of them before long. I am listening like a fiend! Haha. OH and I finally reached the great sleeve divide on my Eavesdrop last night - and I even accomplished the most challenging with linen Horizontal Stitch! Now just 13 inches of stockinette to go! :)

Looks like a lot of knitting but such a pretty result! And the Helprin book sounds interesting - one to keep in mind for the future. : )
