Yarn-along - the return to routine edition

This week has been about getting back into the normal swing of things and catching up on things. Getting the house clean, going to CrossFit, visiting Richmond Knitters and of course telling you what I've been knitting, reading and listening to.
 
Knitting: I knew even before I left for my holiday  that when I got back I would make Hottie Tottie, by Kate Davies   I've been working on it since Friday, and I just have to cast off the neck and do the iCord for the ties.
 
Reading: I'm picking through Are You Dave Gorman?  I bought it to read on the plane, hoping it would be, as one of the reviews on Amazon says "brainless and entertaining". I'm finding it vaguely annoying, but not quite annoying enough to give up on. It's a cheerful enough read, I just get into the spirit of the book.
 
Listening: The Wind of War, by Herman Wouk.  A work friend recommended this and I remember trying to read the paperback - and I've only read book on Kindle for the last two and a half years, so it must have been a while ago. I really struggled with the book, but the audio version is great. The characters are interesting, the reader is perfect for the book and I just wish I had more time to listen.

As usual I'm doing Yarn-along with Ginny. Pop over to her blog to check out what she, and the other yarn along peeps are knitting and reading this week.
