Yarn-along; the one where most things are finished

Its Wednesday again, and as usual I'm doing Yarnalong with Ginny. Pop over to her blog to see what she, and the other Yarnalongers are knitting and reading this week.

This week I WAS reading Twice Apon a Time, by Kate Forster. It's not Great Literature oranything, but it was a really fun, silly, easy to read romance, and sometimes a happy ending is the best thing ever. And that's not a spoiler, it's the kind of book that the happy ending is never in question, it's just how you are going to get there there that's the voyage. Anyway, I finished it tonight. and am again not quite sure what I am going to read next.

Tonight I also finished knitting my latest bathmat. Once I've sewn in the ends and given it a bath I'll blog about it properly, but I think I'm really happy with it. The colours are prettier than in the picture above.

Not surprisingly, I'm still listening to War and Remembrance, the sequel to the Winds of War. I' still enjoying it, and expect to continue to do so for another 6 weeks or so. 

And that's me for another week of knitting, reading and listening. I hope you are enjoying your books and crafting as much as I am mine.

Moving on UP

So, last week Leon and I bought a house! Well, actually a perfectly sized flat. The thing about our perfectly sized flat is that it’s a bit smaller than our current rather home – where we live now is a giant flat built in the 1960s. We’ve got loads of space, a  dining room,  a garage and a storage room. Unfortunately, not too much maintenance has been done on the place in the last three decades. The place we’ve bought is lovely – 15 years old, with a new kitchen, views to forever and nothing is falling apart. But it’s got a carspot, and room for a dining table in the living room. So, I’ve had a look at my stuff and I’m getting rid of things like a crazy lady! Also, it turns out I’d rather get rid of everything than move it. I'm destashing as if we are moving into the carspot, rather than the flat! All our CDs –GONE. All the DVDs –given away, books - bye bye...

It’s been really interesting, especially in relation to my crafting things. I’ve got quite a lot of spinning fibre, and I’m…

Yarnalong - the one with the end of a chapter

Last week Ginny announced that, after 6 years, she was finishing the yarnalong. . I’ve been participating since  December 2013 ; over three years. It’s bittersweet – doing the Yarnalong has given me a good structure to my blogging and I’ve loved reading about what Ginny, and all the other members of the yarnalong get up to every week. But this is a time of change for me – some very exciting things have happened, which I can’t share here quite yet. It’s a time for letting go, and for new beginnings. So I leave you with one last photo of my kindle and my knitting, and I say “thank you” to Ginny, and everyone else who have brightened my Wednesdays for the last 6 years.

Look what I found!!

I was putting away the yarn from my mothers ASJ, which I have finished - it's having a bath right now, and I found this blue yarn:

Now, I'm pretty sure that the yarn I left at book club a month ago was Patonyle in navy, and that's what this is too! Either way, it is an exact match:

That's the old yarn and the one I just found, together, and they are the exact same colour!

There is only 13 grams, so I don't know if it will be enough to finish both sleeves, and the  iCord front, but if it is I won't have to wait another month to declare this project done!
