Yarnalong - the next one with the boring photo

I've finished both the sleeves of Epistrophy, and what you can see here is the cast on for the body. I haven't even knit the first round of the body, but I will tell you, based on the sleeves, that I am loving the White Gum Wool. Knowing it's local and organic just makes the whole thing sweeter.

I'm reading Chris Cleve's The Other Hand . I don't remember who recommended it, but i found it in my wish list and it's brilliant. I'm just wrapped up in the characters, and hoping that everything works out, but knowing it might not. I'm nearly finished, and I don't want it to end.

And I just started listening to Guns Germ and Steel by Jared Diamond. I've only just started, and so far I am not a fan, because while arguing that he is not making cultural assumptions about what is better he makes a load of cultural assumptions about intelligence. Anyway, hopefully it will grow on me.

Click over to Ginny's blog to see what she, and the rest of the yarnalong are knitting and reading this week.
