Yarnalong - the one where the computer is still not fixed

The computer should be fixed later this week. It feels very weird for me not to have my projects up to date on Ravelry and I really don't enjoy typing on a touch screen.

Anyway this week I’ve been knitting the Baby Girl Fair IsleCardigan. So far I’m not up to the Fair Isle  bit, and it’s a very straightforward knit, although the instructions are somewhat odd, and involve breaking the yarn three times when attaching the sleeves and the body, which seems quite unnecessary. The yarn is Little DipperYarns, and it’s so pretty.

I’m reading The Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins. It’s a thriller, I guess, a bit like Gone Girl. I’m about half way through and enjoying it.

I’m listening to As You Wish, which is Cary Elwes' story about filming The Princess Bride. The book has five star reviews on Audible and it’s about one of my favourite movies, but I’m finding it rather tedious. It’s repetitious and full of humble bragging and how nice everyone was. Which is lovely, but rather dull to listen to. I’m mainly listening to it at work.

To brighten things up I am also listening to Benjamin Law’s The Family Law. He has a column in the Sunday Age, and, like his column, these are first person stories, funny snippets about his family. Hopefully next I’ll listen to something a bit more substantial.

And that's another week gone. Pop over the Ginny's blog to see what she, and all the other Yarnalong people are up to this week.

  1. I love the colour of your yarn - it's so pretty!
    I have had several people tell me I should read The Girl on the Train. I'll have to get my hands on it soon!
