Ripple, ripple, ripple. I'm almost finished with the green section at the top of the photo; I have about four more rows left until it's the same width as the camel and cream sections. I have a color plan in mind, but nothing is set in stone. I like this blanket so far; it's lightweight and small, but I think it will be good for keeping your lap warm while you read. Or maybe a little something for around the shoulders. Do you like to wear a blanket when you read or watch TV? I usually do, during most of the year. I like to sleep under a blanket in bed too, even in summer (a light one). I've never been able to sleep well with just the sheet on me, or with no cover at all. I think it's the weight I find comforting. I like being tucked in and covered up.
I finished The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. I don't want to give anything away so I'll be vague for those who still want to read it: I loved it and it was perfectly mysterious and suspenseful, with a surprising ending. It was very good and I was not disappointed, which was nice because I felt a little let down when I read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn a couple of years ago; so much hype for a fairly unsatisfying story, in my humble opinion. It actually put me off mystery novels for a little while, which is saying a lot because I've been known to read some real tripe. Anyway, I've just started a new one, Where They Found Her by Kimberly McCreight. I loved her previous book, Reconstructing Amelia, and was excited to see she had a new novel out. I'm literally a couple of pages in at the moment so I can't say much about it yet, but I'll let you know.
