Yarnalong - the one before the break

I'm taking nearly two weeks off over the Christmas break, and I'm very excited about it. I just have to make it through this last busy week. luckily I am reading an excellent book -The Privilege of the the Sword, by Ellen Kushner It's the sequel to the Swordpoint, which I read in November and loved. It's good, but in a slightly trashier way than the proceeding novel. I'm quite near the end and it's very exciting,and I'm basically in love with all of the characters. 

As I said yesterday, I'm knitting Christmas sneaker liners.



And I'm listening to Fives and Twenty-fives, set in the Iraq war. It's written by an ex-marine, and hits just the right note, about the stupidity of war and the actions of very genuine people. It's not light, but I'm glad I'm listening to it.


And that's me this week. I wish you well over the holidays. Make sure you pop over to Ginny's blog to see what she and the rest of the yarnalong have been up to in this pre Christmas week.

  1. I loved "Fives and Twenty-Fives"! My husband is in the Air Force so military fiction appeals to me. I thought it was an amazing book and it actually made it on my 10-best-of-the-year list!
