So, as far as movies go, I'm caught up to "The Deathly Hallows, Part II". Now to convince myself I want to sit in the theatre for it. I loved "Captain America" at the IMAX, but I have to say, I can't get myself fired up for much. Last movie I saw was "Thor" and the seats at theatres aren't any softer or more comfortable for my back/knees.
So the blanket grows by spurts and leaps. So far, I have 11 12"x12" squares, all in subtle, mid-tone blues and greens. I hope it continues to grow. That way I'll have the next 25 squares (ahhh!) done and lots of left-overs for a shawl. Clean your plate!
