When all else fails... a Harry Potter marathon. I was all by my lonesome yesterday. Perfect opportunity to do nothing. So I thought I could actually get some knitting time in. I popped in Harry Potter year one and got lost in the wizarding world. I didn't stop until the fourth year was over. It was great. I mean really, is there a better way to spend a lazy day?

With everything going on lately, I haven't had time to knit much less blog about it. But I do have a bit more progress to show on my Forest Path Stole. I finsihed tier 4 and am half way through tier 5.

And I also started something else. You know it wouldn't take me long. I decided, after seeing some beautiful ones, to make a Magic Mosaic afghan. The book (Mosaic Knitting by Barbara G. Walker) has 116 magic mosaic designs. The first 63 are what were used for the afghan pictured in the book.

To shake it up a bit, I looked through all 116 designs and chose my own 63. I have them all picked out, and know their position and color combo. So I should have it finished in the years (eons) to come. Here's the start of my first square. It's mosaic #2.

So that's it for today. Hopefully life will let me knit a bit more soon.

It's great ... tier 4 already. Projects like this need patience and perseverance.
I have the Mosaic book too and I'd love to make an afghan like that ... some day.

I love the way the colours are working up on the FPS.
The mosaic square is cool. I too have the book. I should consider an afghan when time permits.

An HP marathon is the perfect way to spend a day. Good for you!

No better way to spend a lazy day to be sure! The stole and block are looking smashing!
