Yarnalong -the one where winter is coming

As I said earlier in the week, and all evidence to the contrary, winter is coming, and I thought I would get Leon's winter set (2016) done. I knit the mitts as part of the 7 Skeins Club, and last week I made the hat, also from the club. I decided to improvise the scarf by taking the motive from the mitts and putting it on a scarf:




It does mean that the scarf has a right and a wrong side, but I think it will look good anyway. It also meant a lot of flat colourwork, which did took forever, and I've still got the other end to do. It will be worth it to have the matching set though.

I'm reading Half the World by Joe Abercombe. It's the second in the Shattered Sea trilogy, and I'm loving it as much as I did the first.  I really don't want to put it down. I love reading good fantasy, and this certainly qualifies.

And I'm still struggling through Magda Szubannski's memoir Reckoning. She's just so negative. And I'm a third of the way through and she's now eleven years old. Mainly I'm listening to the Call Your Girlfriend podcast. They're a bit nuts, but also a whole lot of fun.

And that's what I've been up to this week. Join Ginny and the rest of the yarnalong, over at her blog Small Things.
