Yarnalong -the one with the new job

I started a new role at work this week and it's been interesting. It's very nice to do something challenging, to learn new things and to make my way through a work day without being bored out of my brain. BUT, to deal with the boredom of my old role I listened to audiobooks and podcasts while working. No more. I knitted and listened and read books while travelling around Victoria. No more. So, while I think this was the right move to make, for my career and my sanity, it is definitly impacting on my knitting, reading and listening.
That's Fern (my parents cat) on the floor, Tarragon on the couch and Princess Daisy on the right. I'm not sure where Juniper was.

I am reading Saving the World by Julia Alvarez. It's quite good, but not amazing. it feels like something you could discuss earnestly at a book club.

As promised I'm knitting Left Over Sock Yarn socks for my father. I'm on the second one, using the Blender technique. It's rather enthusiastically coloured, but I know he likes that sort of things. 

And that's another week gone by, one full of exciting challenges. Pop over to Ginny's blog Small Things, to see what she, and the rest of the Yarnalong are up to this week.
