Yarnalong - the one where I finish some things and decide not to finish other things

I finished Twist pullover. Its blocking behind me as we speak. I'm looking forward to seeing how it looks on, once it's dried.

After getting two third of the way through it, I abandoned My Brilliant Friend. I was finding the blow by blow description of the protagonist's childhood tedious,and they kept carrying on about these shoes, and she had no personality and on Saturday night I thought "they are going to marry her 15 year old best friend off to someone she hates, and I can't bring myself to care".  That's not a spoiler, by the way, I don't know that was really going to happen, but I also didn't care. So I abandoned that, and started Until Tuesday, by Luis Carlos Montalván an American ex serviceman and was tearing up before I had finished the first chapter. Not the best written memoir ever, but he really made me care.

I have just cast on for a Kate Davies colourwork hat, The Goats of Inversnaid (but in my head I keep wondering why there are goats in Inverness). Not much to see yet, but I know I'll love it, because: Kate Davies + colourwork + buachaille is an equation with only one answer.

I recommend visiting Ginny's blog to see what she, and the rest of the yarn along are up to this week.
