Yarn-a-long, the I'm just starting edition

This week's yarn along is a bit weird for me, because I have NOTHING on the needles. As soon as I finish writing 
this post I'm going to cast on Brenda Dayne's Pentre Ifan socks out of Naturally Waikiwi, which has merino, alpaca and possum in it.. I'm very excited to knit with this yarn , and excited to knit this toe up sock, which is a rather different construction from my usual top down heel-flap-and-gussett, and also has awesome cables: but only on the back. An interesting development in sock design.

I've just started reading Dead Reckoning, which is the eleventh Sookie Stackhouse novel. I've only just read the first chapter, but over the last year I've read and enjoyed the previous ten, so I've sure this one will be good too. They are a bit formulaic and disposable, but the main character is fairly endearing and I enjoy them.

And, as promised, I'm still listening to, and I hasten to add, still enjoying The Winds of War . Far from getting sick of the characters, or the narrator, as I feared I might, I'm loving seeing the developments slowly unfold.

And that's it for me this week, about to start new things. Join Ginny and the rest of the yarnalong crew over at her blog.
