Yarn-along - The One with Very Minor New Things

Hello and welcome to my weekly Wednesday yarnalong post, where I tell you what I am knitting, reading and listening to, and then suggest you go check out Ginny's blog to see what she and the other yarnalongers are up to this week! 

This week I'm doing somethings a little bit new. I'm knitting with alpaca, which I haven't done since I made Elise her first winter set, way back in 2010. I've cast on for Parcel, and am enjoying it so far, although I've only just started. The cables are knitting up quite softly in the alpaca, which I expected, but normally I go for quite aggressive stitch definition for cables, so that's different too.

I'm reading City of Night by John Rechy. It was originally published in 1963 and is about homosexual prostitutes, so a little different from last weeks book! Still it's an interesting read.

And of course I'm still listening to   listening to The Winds of War. I've only got a few hours to go, and I think I'll miss it. Luckily there is a sequel that's even longer.
