Yarnalong, with books and knitting

This week I'm reading Dead and Gone,  which is the 9th novel in the Sookie Stackhouse series. I really like these books, they are pretty light, and I usually read them after a heavy read - like The Final Empire, which I just finished today and am very much looking forward to reading the second volume of the trilogy. For some reason I always break up series - I never read them straight through. Which is the same with audio books. I'm listening to the fifth in the Discworld Series, Sourcery.  There is not much I can say about it that I haven't said about the previous books in the series: funny books, great narrator and I love The Luggage
In knitting I've started Ysolda's Angastora vest, out of Heron (possum yarn!) I have some concerns, because my swatch lied - surprise surprise, and this is coming out a little tighter than expected. Also, I need to rip out at least five rows because I think I'm doing the edging wrong, although the instructions don't say that, but it looks wrong and I would presume that in this TWELVE PAGE vest pattern, there would have been room to be a tiny bit clearer about the edging. Not that I'm bitter or anything.
As usual on a Wednesday I'm doing yarnalong with Ginny and friends. Pop over to her blog to see what she and everyone else is up to this week.
