The school library I work at is doing some summer renovations. New carpeting will be installed and some of the reference shelves will be shifted. Time is limited and there are many other things to do before the students return in late summer. I was cleaning an out of the way shelf and found a fun little treasure. There was a dusty stack of old Women's Day, Family Circle, McCall's, and Bon Appetit magazines tucked in a back corner. Since they were headed to the recycle bin I asked if I could have them. I love looking at magazines, even old ones. The dates range for 1976 to 1983. They are almost like a time capsule. I can't wait to delve into them. One article is "Today's New Breed of Husbands." I'm sure I'll find loads of helpful information in that one!

I'm trying to work daily on the granny square blanket. One of my problems is my mind darts off to other projects that I want to make. The purple/plum colored ball of yarn in the first photo has hopes to be made into a Spring Kisses Infinity Scarf. The pattern can be found on Ravelry. I would like a take-a-long project. I haven't let myself start this project. I want to be finished with granny squares. I'm sure everyone is tired of hearing about me either working on it or not working on it. If I ever finish this blanket it will be a while before I start another long term project.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit. Maybe one day I'll post about my granny square blanket completion!
