I was out and about today and came across the latest issue of Simply Knitting. I absolutely adore this magazine. It's a Brit magazine, so it's not cheap here since it's an import, but worth it just for the Alan Dart Toy patterns alone. This month they have Medieval Mice! I seriously want to make a medieval mouse now.

They also included a purse pattern that can be done four different ways and the handles to make one. This is on my to do list for sure.

The squares are coming along. I thought I would get completely finished with the fourth square last night, but it wasn't meant to be. It didn't get done today either since my Mom and I went thrift store hopping - got a load of books too, but they were mostly children's books.

I did go looking for more yarn and tried to scout out a good black yarn to have running in between the squares and for the border, but I'm going to have to take a square in with me to find a black yarn that matches the texture of the Debbie Mumm yarn. The yarn that I'm working with is a wool/acrylic blend and it would be nice to find that kind of blend, but if not I'll probably go with acrylic. Of course they were out of the colorway that I'm using here.

Anyway, I'm heading off to choir in a bit and need to find something to feed the hungry menfolk now - see ya tomorrow!
