I am embarking upon a knitting project to make my reading corner that little bit more like home. The space beneath my floor to ceiling window is already quite comfortable with a spare quilt and lots of pillows; it’s perfect for reading and staying out of the way of other people. It just gets a little chilly, and is likely to get colder as the weather begins to turn.

I found a wonderful little pattern, the only problem it is for a baby blanket. I’m making some practice squares to see if I can adapt the pattern to a bigger scale.

I recently joined the knitting society at my University so I am going to learn some new knitting techniques with some wonderful people and use them to make my new throw that little bit more me.
