Yarnalong - the one where everything is different from last week

Unlike last week, this week everything is new and fresh.

As promised, I'm knitting a very pink Mimi Manu for my niece. That's the start of the first sleeve in the picture.

I'm reading  We are All Completely Fine by Daryl Gregory. I had not heard of it but Wil Weaton recommended it.  It's utterly compelling and I can barely top reading for long enough to write about it.

And I'm listening to the end of the Once and Future King series, The Candle in the Wind. It's all rather odd and I like it best when I am listening at work, as the story flows gently across my conciousness.

Ans that's me for another week of knitting and reading. Make sure you pop over to Ginny's blog to see what the rest of the yarnalong are doing this week.


  1. You're the second person this week to mention the Once and Future King series...I've got to check it out!

  2. that is such a great color! that will be a lovely sweater. :)

  3. It's fun to start a new something, I agree! Is that the book they based the recent movie on? It was sad.

Moving on UP

So, last week Leon and I bought a house! Well, actually a perfectly sized flat. The thing about our perfectly sized flat is that it’s a bit smaller than our current rather home – where we live now is a giant flat built in the 1960s. We’ve got loads of space, a  dining room,  a garage and a storage room. Unfortunately, not too much maintenance has been done on the place in the last three decades. The place we’ve bought is lovely – 15 years old, with a new kitchen, views to forever and nothing is falling apart. But it’s got a carspot, and room for a dining table in the living room. So, I’ve had a look at my stuff and I’m getting rid of things like a crazy lady! Also, it turns out I’d rather get rid of everything than move it. I'm destashing as if we are moving into the carspot, rather than the flat! All our CDs –GONE. All the DVDs –given away, books - bye bye...

It’s been really interesting, especially in relation to my crafting things. I’ve got quite a lot of spinning fibre, and I’m…

Yarnalong - the one with the end of a chapter

Last week Ginny announced that, after 6 years, she was finishing the yarnalong. . I’ve been participating since  December 2013 ; over three years. It’s bittersweet – doing the Yarnalong has given me a good structure to my blogging and I’ve loved reading about what Ginny, and all the other members of the yarnalong get up to every week. But this is a time of change for me – some very exciting things have happened, which I can’t share here quite yet. It’s a time for letting go, and for new beginnings. So I leave you with one last photo of my kindle and my knitting, and I say “thank you” to Ginny, and everyone else who have brightened my Wednesdays for the last 6 years.

Look what I found!!

I was putting away the yarn from my mothers ASJ, which I have finished - it's having a bath right now, and I found this blue yarn:

Now, I'm pretty sure that the yarn I left at book club a month ago was Patonyle in navy, and that's what this is too! Either way, it is an exact match:

That's the old yarn and the one I just found, together, and they are the exact same colour!

There is only 13 grams, so I don't know if it will be enough to finish both sleeves, and the  iCord front, but if it is I won't have to wait another month to declare this project done!
