Yarn-along; another one with socks!

So, its Wednesday again, already. And on Wednesday's I do Yarnalong with Ginny and Co. Pop over to her blog to find out what she and all the other yarnalong peeps are up to this week.

This week I am knitting Brenda Dayne's Tintern Abbey socks, out of Dyed for yarn sock wool that I got at the Brunswick wool show. I only started this sock yesterday, but I think I'm going to love knitting these.

I've nearly finished Looking for Alaska by John Greene. Another good YA read. The whole time I've been reading it I've had the song "Looking for Alaska" in my head.

I'm still listening to War and Remembrance. I'm still enjoying the story, but I could do without the long history lessons, particularly when they describe World War Two battles, which are then described from a character's point of view. The history book stuff is just distracting and annoying, especially when he has left his characters in concentration camps and fleeing across Europe and I want to know what happens to them. Basically I think this book could have done with a good editing. Perhaps I need to take a little break and listen to something else.

  2. What pretty yarn. I love knitting socks. I haven't worked on mine in so long. Looking at yours is making me want to pick them up again.

  4. Cool yarn! When knitted up I think it looks a little like camouflage style. I have a sister-in-law who hunts and if I knew how to knit I'd do socks in this yarn for her. The sock pattern also looks great, can't wait to see the finished result!
