Knitting the Arches Baby Blanket and Reading On

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. I got the yarn untangled finally this week! I was untangling as much as possible and then I decided to just cut what I couldn't untangle anymore. I thought the yarn might be weaker in those spots and don't want to affect the blanket once it is done. I am so happy to be knitting again. It felt so silly that I was spending my valuable knitting time just untangling! I missed knitting and following the pattern. I am continuing on with the Arches baby blanket and I am getting so close to being done. I feel like it is so long since I started knitting it now, last November right before I had Evan. I have knitted during his short newborn naps and then through his longer naps now as an infant. I have more time now during his naps for cleaning, preparing food, knitting etc. It is a good feeling. I wanted the share some photos of the blanket now I have about 2.5 repetitions left to go. I am on the 12th repetition of 16 row repeat now of 14 repetitions of the pattern. So the end is in sight! then I will bind off for the final row.

I am still reading Every Summer After by Carly Fortune. It is really good so far. I am looking forward to starting to read It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover hopefully next week. I have been reading Self- Care for Moms by Sara Robinson here and there and I like the advice so far. It is so important to work on self-care all the time especially in the busy times of being a new mom.

I bought a cute pumpkin mug from Indigo recently that I have been enjoying drinking from in the morning. I am so happy it is almost Fall and I am thinking of decorating soon.

Joining along for the link up over at As Kat Knits for Unraveled Wednesday.
