Yarn-along: the one with the sulking

Hi. It's Wednesday, and that means it's yarnalong day. Head over to Ginny's blog Small Things to see what she and the other yarnalongers are knitting and reading this week.

I made great progress with Leon's Alberta this week - at least until my arm got put in a freaking cast. I can knit, but the edge of the thumb hole pushes against my thumb, which is uncomfortable. I'm only being compliant in the hope that, if I do everything exactly as prescribed I'll be able to knit in the mornings without my hands going numb, something that I haven't been able to do in close to two years. So the knitting won't be fast, but I only have an inch or two left on the body, and the shoulder shaping, then the steaking and knitting neck and armhole edges and then I'm done.

I'm not really reading anything much. I finished the Sookie Stackhouse series the day before I started sulking about the whole arm in a cast thing and that was my comfort reading. I've dipped back in to The Cocaine Chronicles, which is a series of short stories about ... well you can work it out. I got it from the library ages ago when it came up in response to a search I did  for something completely different. My library ebook search  is like that, but hey, it's free and legal so I'll take what I find. I suppose in the next day or so I'll decide what to read next.

And I'm still  listening to  War and Remembrance. And loving it. In fact, I'm going to go finish warping my loom and listen to the next chapter right now.
