Yarnalong - the one with the paper book

I've been reading novel exclusively on my Kindle since I bought my first one, over three years ago. I just adore it. A couple of months ago I finished City of Stairs and bought the next book in the series, City of Blades, using Amazon 1-click. I happened to review the ;purchase email and realised I had accidentally bought the paper book. I immediately tried to return it. Amazon accepted the return, but sent me the book anyway. So I'm reading a paper book, and it's quite challenging. Even just holding it is more stressful on my poor hands than the Kindle, and I keep on forgetting to put my bookmark back in when I'm done.


Ahh, my bookmark. I love this bookmark. It's by Bookrug and is so pretty, and has a lovely texture. I guess before I was obsessed with Kindle covers I obsessed about bookmarks.

As for actual content, I'm enjoying the book. I'm not very far into it yet, but it has the same tone as it's predecessor. 

I'm still knitting  Vitamin D cardigan. It's going well, I can't show a good photo, because I'm doing the shortrows so it's all bunched up on the needle. 

As usual on a Wednesday I'm joining in with Ginny and the yarnalong. Click over to her blog to see what she, and everyone else, is knitting and reading this week.

  1. I love a good bookmark, although I also read mostly on my kindle now too! I look forward to seeing your finished Vitamin D!

  2. Love your bookmark, really beautiful! The name of the cardigan and the color of your yarn match perfectly :)

  3. I love a nice bookmark too. These days I do a lot of book reading via library downloads on my mobile, occasionally on my Kindle and rarely in paper (real) form. I love the convenience of reading on my mobile, oh and sometimes I have an audible book so I can do something else at the same time. Like knitting :)

  4. Oh, Vitamin D cardigan is on my list from a while too!! The best thing of owning a tablet is that I can read while knit, somehow reading a paper book is not always managable for me... Lovely bookmark too :)

  5. Lovely bookmark! I'm always tucking receipts and tiny scraps of paper in as bookmarks.

Look what I found!!

I was putting away the yarn from my mothers ASJ, which I have finished - it's having a bath right now, and I found this blue yarn:

Now, I'm pretty sure that the yarn I left at book club a month ago was Patonyle in navy, and that's what this is too! Either way, it is an exact match:

That's the old yarn and the one I just found, together, and they are the exact same colour!

There is only 13 grams, so I don't know if it will be enough to finish both sleeves, and the  iCord front, but if it is I won't have to wait another month to declare this project done!


Moving on UP

So, last week Leon and I bought a house! Well, actually a perfectly sized flat. The thing about our perfectly sized flat is that it’s a bit smaller than our current rather home – where we live now is a giant flat built in the 1960s. We’ve got loads of space, a  dining room,  a garage and a storage room. Unfortunately, not too much maintenance has been done on the place in the last three decades. The place we’ve bought is lovely – 15 years old, with a new kitchen, views to forever and nothing is falling apart. But it’s got a carspot, and room for a dining table in the living room. So, I’ve had a look at my stuff and I’m getting rid of things like a crazy lady! Also, it turns out I’d rather get rid of everything than move it. I'm destashing as if we are moving into the carspot, rather than the flat! All our CDs –GONE. All the DVDs –given away, books - bye bye...

It’s been really interesting, especially in relation to my crafting things. I’ve got quite a lot of spinning fibre, and I’m…

Yarnalong - the one with the end of a chapter

Last week Ginny announced that, after 6 years, she was finishing the yarnalong. . I’ve been participating since  December 2013 ; over three years. It’s bittersweet – doing the Yarnalong has given me a good structure to my blogging and I’ve loved reading about what Ginny, and all the other members of the yarnalong get up to every week. But this is a time of change for me – some very exciting things have happened, which I can’t share here quite yet. It’s a time for letting go, and for new beginnings. So I leave you with one last photo of my kindle and my knitting, and I say “thank you” to Ginny, and everyone else who have brightened my Wednesdays for the last 6 years.
