Time for the usual (occasional) round up:
Reading - Colour: Travels through the paintbox by Victoria Finlay.
Found this in the Oxfam bookshop and am enjoying it a lot, especially as I've just finished indigo and am now on violet (my favourite colours). Very interesting, even if it is more about pigments than dyes. Next up is the reading group book, The Family Tree by Carole Cadwalladr, which will probably be a breastfeeding book, if I can remember how to read while feeding.
Knitting - Pinwheel blanket, as blogged earlier. I've finished the squishy baby blanket, which has turned out very soft and squishy and worth doing even if the yarn was a nightmare, so I can now concentrate on the pinwheel. Currently it measures about 12 inches across, so a fair bit more to go then.
Sewing - currently in between projects, I've just finished felt monsters (had the craft workshop today, and had lots of kids making monsters - they were brilliant, loads of creativity and perseverance and quite a bit of good sewing!) but there is another project in the pipeline, though as the deadline is next Saturday and the baby is due on Wednesday, I may have left it a bit late. Ooops.
