Yarnalong - the one with Kate Davies

I'm not sure that noting that this week has been about knitting Kate Davies patterns is particularly noteworthy, since it's all Kate Davies all the time around here.

I'm still knitting Mini Manu. I'm so close to being finished though. One pocket, and kitchenering the underarms, and then I am done.

I just finished reading Nancy Mitford's The Pursuit of Love. Nancy Mitford was, rather surprisingly, namechecked in last weeks book, the military science fiction book The End Of All Things, so I looked her up and wondered why I have never read any of her books. The best way to buy it on Kindle was the collected works and I loved The Pursuit of Love so I expect I'll be reading loads more of her books soon.

 And I'm still listening to The Hare with the Amber Eyes.It's quite pleasant, but at the moment I'm not sure where it is really going, if anywhere.

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