Yarnalong- the one where everything is new and going well so far

I finished The Signature of all things last night. It was not what I was expecting at all, but an excellent read. I've just started The Royal We, which is delicious trash, and basically Kate Middleton fan fiction. It's the literary equivalent of a slurpee, and sometimes that's just perfect.

In knitting, I'm running true to form and knitting a Kate Davies colourwork blanket. This time it's the Tir Chonail pattern, and it's for Elise. So far so good:

I'm listening to Felicia Day's memoir You're Never Weird on the Internet (almost). A memoir read by it's author? Sign me up. Pretty much my favourite audio genre.

And that's me done for another week, enjoying what I'm knitting, reading and listening to. pop over to Ginny's blog to see what she, and the rest of the Yarnalong, are up to this week.


  1. thats gorgeous! I am amazed at colorwork like this. I laughed at your description of your book...a slurpee...ha! sounds great

  2. That blanket looks gorgeous! I love a bit of colour work but I wish I had the patience for something on that scale!

    1. Thanks! Its knitting up surprisingly quickly.

  3. Gosh that colourwork is fabulous, love it.

  4. You colourwork is lovely!
    I have had the Signature of all Things for a good two years, but still haven't got around to reading it - maybe I should :)
