Yarnalong - the one with the new camera

We have a new camera and it actually focuses on things, which I am very excited about. it also means you can see in the photo above that my K2togs are much neater than my SSK. I'm knitting Milly, by Trude Hertaas, another pair of sneaker liners, this time in yarn I dyed myself.

I'm reading The Wildwater Walking Club by Clare Cook. It's pleasant, but not a very good book, with little character development and not a lot to recommend it. Earlier in the week I read Dietland by Sarai Walker, which raised some big questions about feminism and body image, so this is a complete change of pace. I would recommend Dietland- its a far from perfect book, but I'm still thinking about it days later. I've practically forgotten Wildwater already, and I haven't even finished it!

I'm still listening to the Hitchhikers series. I'm up to book three and can't stop listening. Whenever they talk about how 42 is the answer to life, the universe and everything i am reminded that I am training for a marathon. I don't imagine I'll find the answer to anything much across that finish line though.

And that's another week of knitting and reading in my word. make sure you pop over to Ginny's blog to see what she, and the rest of the yarnalong are up to this week.     


  1. pretty socks and how lovely to be knitting with yarn you dyed yourself! Glad you have a new camera that focuses, always a plus.

  2. Enjoy the hitchhiker series. You will find friends who are reading/have read the series even years later and don't forget your towel.
