Yarn along -Follow Your Arrow Edition

This week I am knitting three things, which might be a record for me! Unfortunately (or otherwise) I also have things to do that are not knitting, so things seem to be going quite slowly.

I'm currently knitting Clue 5A onto my BABA two colour Follow Your Arrow shawl. The lace is simple and enjoyable, although the rows are very long by this stage.
I'll be knitting Clue 5B onto my ABAB shawl, but I'm no where near even picking that up.
I'm also knitting a baby jumper, which I started sometime last week. The pattern is the very originally named yoked cardigan, by Hannah Fettig, and I only have the button band to go.

I'm reading Wool by Hugh Howey Contrary to what you would expect from the name, this book has very little to do with knitting. There was one mention of a character knitting early on, although the character was knitting with cotton. It's sci-fi and very well written, although at this point (I'm neraly half way through) a rather devastating and suspensful read.

I'm listening to The Scarlett Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy. It's been on my list of books to read for years. As seems to happen quite often, while it's a classic, it's actually quite a light adventure book. Every single time, I'm surprised when old books romp along.  The narrator, Michael Page, is brilliant and I will definitely be looking out (listening out?) for other books read by him. 

As usual on a Wednesday, I'm playing along with Ginny's Yarn Along. Pop over to her blog to see what she, and all the other yarn-alongers are up to.
