Welcome to this week's yarnalong, where I tell you what I'm knitting, reading and listening to, and then encourage you to go to Ginny's blog and see what everyone else is up to.
This Good Beer Week I am, as promised, knitting the Honeycomb Vest. As I hoped, the pattern is easy enough to memorise , and knit in all conditions, but still so much fun. It is creating this wonderful fabric, with a nearly quilted feeling. I'm just about up to the underarms, so it should last me to the end of Good Beer Week.
I'm reading The Narrow Road to the Deep North. This was part of my misguided plan to read all the Man-Booker 2014 nominated novels. I have very mixed feelings about this book. It's very well written, but the middle third is continual brutal descriptions of the horrors of building the Burma Railway. And it went on, and on and on. I nearly gave up except I wanted to know what happened. So, if you want a depressing read, I recommend this.
I'm listening to Sense and Sensibility. I love Jane Austin and hadn't realised that I had neither read nor listened to this until my father started reading and talking about it. It's read by Juliette Stevenson, who is a fantastic narrator for these sorts of books. I'm enjoying it very much, and it is very soothing, which makes it a good balance.
