Yarnalong- the one where my brain is fried

Hi! It's Wedneday,and that mean's it's time for Yarnalong with Ginny
. pop over to her blog and see what she and everyone else has been up to this week.

I'm working from home today, and that means my brain is kind of fried. Staring at a screen with no distractions from my colleagues, no coffee runs, no interruptions. I get more done at home, but there is a reason I like going in to the office. So, in order to get away from my computer, I'm going to (try to) keep this brief.

I'm reading The Twelve, by Justin Cronin. It's the sequel to The Passage,  which I read in April, and enjoying it. Also, there are passing references to the women knitting, although I'm not sure what they are knitting with, since it's  70 years after the end of civilisation and there is no mention of sheep. Maybe we will find out later.

I'm knitting and listening to  a Discworld double. Rachel Coopey's Weatherwax Socks  paired with Discworld book 17 - Interesting Times.

Hope you are all enjoying your reading and knitting too!

  1. I loved those books and I'm awaiting the third for as far as I know, it's still not out. Lovely colour for socks!

  2. Have a successful workday at home! I'm curious myself to hear what these women were knitting. Maybe there is a post-apocalyptic animal that bares spinning fiber!

  3. That's very pretty yarn. I know what you mean about a fried brain from too much computer time. I hope you can take a walk, even just a short one.

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!


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.
