Late update

I've been such a bad blogger recently, but I'm trying to be good again. The trouble is I've only got so many things that I can post on my blog, there's the odd secret project knocking about as well, so I can't show those.
Firstly, I accidentally started a new blanket, I'm so weak, I know, but I've been in love with this yarn ever since I saw it at Yarndale and it jumped into my shopping bag. It feels amazing, and it's chunky, so it's making up really quickly, this is already three or four inches wide and I've hardly spent any time on it, but I'll have to go shopping for more yarn, I knew my three skeins wouldn't be enough, but I hadn't factored in how quickly chunky makes up and so uses up. So, my favourite blanket pattern makes another appearance, Cosy Stripe from Attic24. 
Secondly I am trying to put a little bit of time aside each week for stitching,  this was only a couple of hours last week, but at least it's something, and I am loving working on it when I can. And looks, I see a tiny bit more motorbike making shape, I'm so happy! I have (as per usual) such ambitious stitching plans, so a little progress makes me so happy!

Your blanket looks great. It must be nice to work on something that does work up quickly as opposed to our stitching. Nice progress on Dragon rider, all progress is fantastic. I'm with you paddling in the ambitious stitcher boat too don't worry LOL!
