Yarnalong - with a bonus Princess Daisy

Princess Daisy thinks the best place to sleep is on a plastic bag full of yarn, next to me when I am sitting on the floor knitting. In this case I have just cast on for the hat for Leon's Winter Set (2015). I'm knitting a top down hat with a vertical stripe, hence the decision to knit flat, rather than in the round. I've only just started, I really hope this works.

I'm listening to The Quaker Cafe. I'm rather enjoying it, which is a bit of a relief. I abandoned The Paying Guests . You may recall that last week I wasn't sure about it - after a lot more listening I realised that I didn't like any of the characters, and I really didn't care if they went under a bus, so I stopped.

I'm reading The Ghost Brigades  by John Scalzi. It's the second in the Old Man's War series, and I really enjoyed the first book, so I imagine this one will be just as good.

And that's what I'm listening to. reading and knitting. Pop over to Ginny's blog to see what the other Yarnalong peeps are up to this week.

Also, I promise Princess Daisy isn't really that fat, it's just an unflattering photo.


  1. Oh my gosh!! You have a cat named Princess Daisy... that is the cutest darn name ever!

  2. I thought you might have been getting little Princess Daisys! I am looking for that book at the library now. Good luck with the hat.
