It's Wednesday and, as usual on Wednesday I'm joining Ginny and the other yarn-along peeps. Pop over to Ginny's blog to see what they are reading and knitting this week.
This week I cast on for Ysolda's Cria. I've been wanting to knit this jumper for ages - last Bendigo I accidentally bought half the amount of yarn I needed (which I eventually made Parcel from, so all's well that ends well). I bought the Alpaca yarn in New Zealand, and am, so far, really enjoying knitting this, one my new Addi lace Clicks, although, since I only cast on yesterday, let me get a bit further into it before I form opinions.
I'm reading Deadlocked by Charlene Harris, the second last book in the Southern Vampire mysteries. I'm enjoying it, they are formulaic but still surprising.
No surprises what I'm listening to: War and Remembrance, the sequel to the Winds of War. I'm alternating between loving it and being impatient with the slow movement of the plot.
I've actually taken a little break to listen to Beat the Devil by Mishka Shubaly. He's an recovering alcoholic ultra runner who writes novellas about his experiences that tend to be funny and sad in equal amounts. So that's a complete change in pace for me.
And finally, welcome to Sonia, who has just joined the Yarnalong for t he first time.
