Yarnalong -the one during the break

Like everyone else, I love being on holidays, and there is something glorious about a staycation. I'm doing nothing but seeing friends, knitting, reading, going to the cricket and relaxing. No pressure to achieve anything much.


As I wrote yesterday, I've knitted a gloriously ridiculous amount on my colour work vest. I actually only have twenty ever decreasing rounds to go, and then it's steeking time.

I'm reading Half a King  by Joe Abercombie, and loving it. It's a good rollicking fantasy trilogy, set in a norse like world. Really well written and I can't put it down.

And I'm not going to talk much about what I'm listening to this week, because it turns out I mainly listen at work and when I'm putting out the washing, and I don't need to do that much washing. 

And that's my week in yarn and books. pop over to Ginny's blog to see what she, and the rest of the Yarnalong, are up to this week.

  1. I love your vest! And steeking, wow, it is on my list to do this year.
    Your book sounds like something my son would absolutely love to read, thank you for writing about it. My Alex reads constantly and it's a struggle to find more books that he would like.

  2. Your vest looks gorgeous. Good luck with the steeking, I have only tried it once with a very small project.
