Yarnalong - the one with the vague discontent

Welcome to this weeks yarnalong, where we talk about what we knitting, reading (and in my case audiobook listening to). If you want to see what everyone else, including Ginny, who started these shenanigans, pop over to her blog

I am finishing up the Honeycomb vest. Knitting it was fun, but it feels like the edgings are taking forever. I mean, I started the first shoulder ribbing on Tuesday. And now it's Wednesday. I guess, because Good Beer Week is over I feel like this should be too.

I'm still listening to  Sense and Sensibility  but I'm not really enjoying it, rather to my surprise. The main female characters are all so useless, and all anyone seems to want to do is marry worthless men, and I'm sure it will end happily, but I'm not sure I care. A little bit like a modern rom-com.

I'm reading The Martian . I told Skip he had to, had to, had to read The Passage and he is, so I thought I would read this book which he loved. I'm quite liking it and it's getting better as I go along. (I noticed the copy I linked to did not have a cover with a guy with amazing cheekbones...)

So that's me for this week. I'm vaguely discontented, I'm not quite sure what i am knitting next and my audiobook is annoying me. But I'm basically doing just fine!

  1. Almost done, its always disconcerting when you are so close to the end. I really enjoyed sense and sensibility , both the film and the book I have never listened to it on audiobook.
