Yarn-along - the one where the epic cardigan begins

Over the Easter long weekend I read the last in the Stage Dive series, Deep. Here’s the cover, which might have been the best part of the book:

 
The first of this romance series was pretty good, but the other three books were basically exactly the same. Also love at first sight that conquers everything. Blurg. I don’t know why I read this type of book, but I keep going back to them anyway.
 
To get the sickly sweet, fake taste of this book out of my mouth I'm reading Little Peach by Peggy Kern, about a 14 year old coerced into prostitution. Quite the contrast! I'm enjoying it, although it is as grim as that description sounds.
 
I'm listening to the last bit of Benjamin Law’s memoir, which is amusing.
 
And I’m knitting Ursula. I started it on Sunday and this is what I have so far:



 Expect to be seeing this for quite some time.
 Make sure you pop over to Ginny’s blog to see what she, and the other Yarn-along peeps are up to this week.

  1. Cute start to a sweater! I know what you mean by going back to books that are very predictable. I love the books where the fall in love in a ridiculous short time and they can fight off any evil. Predictable and boring yet my fav!
