Yarnalong - finishing things up

Right, it's Wednesday, the sun is shining and it's time for Yarnalong with Ginny - pop over to her wonderful blog Small Things to see what everyone is knitting and reading this week.

This week I am still knitting Leon's Alberta vest. I've cut the steeks and finished one armhole. It's been a bit slow, partly because I've been busy weaving, and partly because because knitting with a piece of blue plastic on my hand is slower than knitting without a piece of blue plastic on my hand. It's an enjoyable, stress free knit, which is really what I needed, in the circumstances.

I'm reading an enjoyable stress free read too - Cocaine Blues by Kerry Greenwood.  I don't know how I got two books with cocaine in the title in a row. It's the first of the Phryne Fisher cosy mysteries, and very cosy it is too. I've read, and enjoyed, Kerry Greenwood's other series, but I'm liking this even more. There are twenty books so far in the series, so I imagine the books will pop up periodically here.

And I'm listening to the War and Rememberance. I'm only a few hours from the end, and now that I'm so close I really don't want to get there. I've been listening to this story on and off since April, and I'm going to be slightly bereft to be without it. 

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are enjoying your knitting and reading too.

  1. I like that vest. Sorry about the brace. I went through something similar recently and had to stop knitting and crocheting altogether. At least you have gotten the go ahead to continue knitting. I hope your nerve issues are better soon.
