Yarnalong - the one where I'm not sure about anything

So this week I'm part way through reading, knitting and listening to things and I'm not quite sure about anything.

I'm still knitting Blank Canvas - I'm at the bit where the sleeves join the body and it looks really short, but all the measuring I've done suggests it will be fine. I'm still not sure if it witll fit.

I'm reading J by Howard Jacobson,  another of the Mann-Booker nominees. I'm a third of the way through it and it's very good, but I'm not sure if it will resolve into brilliance, or continue to puzzle me.

I'm listening to the Paying Guests (As an aside, shortlisted for the Mann-Booker three times, so I guess there's a theme.) Again I am quite enjoying this, but it doesn't really have a lot of pace. 

So that's me for another Yarnalong - bumbling through, enjoying reading, listeing and knitting, but not quite sure whether things are going to work out for my knititng, reading or listening. Join Ginny and the rest of the Yarnalong on her blog to see what everyone else is up to this week.

  1. I like your Blank Canvas - I love stripes for some reason! I try to read the Man Booker prize list too, but haven't got to these ones yet. I use the prize list so that I will read out of my comfort zone - otherwise I would just tend to read the same sort of books that I know I will enjoy. I will have to try J, for sure. Have a great week!

    1. Yeah, it was interesting, but I wouldn't really recommend it. But certainly outside my comfort zone!
