Yarnalong - the one with trains, planes and automobiles

It's been a busy week for me, whipping around the state for work. I've taken trams, trains, buses, taxis and aeroplanes. I've even knit in a police car.

all the  while knitting away on my Dreambird shawl, which is very close to being finished now. It's a good size and I'm looking forward to how it will look post blocking.

As a bonus, here's a picture of me knitting at Mildura airport, after they confiscated the cake fork I had in my bag, but literally didn't look at my Addi Turbos.

This has also given me plenty of time to listen to audio books. I'm very nearly finished The Long Earth by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter. I've had this book for ages, and I hesitated to listen to it because of mixed reviews, which is exactly what it deserved. Very listenable, with a great narrator, but the book is lacking structure, and the world doesn't seem to have fixed rules. Basically ir feel like they are making it up as they go along. I don't think i will listen to the sequel.

I'm reading the final in Rachel Herron's Firefighters of Darling Bay series, Heat. It's as expected, light fluffy and lovely.

As usual on a Wedensday, I'm participating in Yarnalong, hosted by Ginny of Small Things. Pop over to her blog to see what she and the rest of the yarnalong are up to this week.
