It's ...Tuesday, what are you reading?

As I often do, I’m joining in with Kathryn from The Book Date’s ‘Its Monday, what are you reading?” but I’m joining in on a random day of the week, because I’m a rebel like that.



This week I’m reading Jilted  by Rachel Johns. It’s my first outback romance, and its fine. Well written, and a good story. I always like a romance that isn’t JUST about the guy, and this has strong secondary characters. I think it might be the first romance book I have read set in Australia, which is somewhat surprising. I’m liking it, but not getting through it very fast. Maybe just because I’m quite busy at the moment – lots of knitting and spinning and dyeing and spending time with friends. Maybe I just wasn’t quite in the mood for a traditional romance.  Still, it’s a pleasant enough way to pass the time, and, although I think I can predict a plot twist, I still want to know for sure.

  1. The cover of your book is intriguing - makes me wonder who jilted whom? I enjoy a good book - and taking my time with it! Thank you for sharing!

  2. That looks interesting, and I love the cover! Now that I think about it, I don't recall seeing a whole lot of novels set in Australia. That alone would get my attention. ;-) Here's what I'm reading this week:http://bit.ly/2DC0G86

Yarnalong - the (first) one with the MKAL

You know how I love a link up, a KAL or a chance to knit what everyone else is knitting? Well, I'm doing Ysolda's Gloamin-tide mystery knit along. The clues are coming out on Monday late evening my time, so I knit the first one on Tuesday and Thursday nights. I'll try to take photos of the next clue on a different coloured background!
I'm reading Chaim Potok's Davita's Harp.I was at my parents a few months ago and my husband was talking about money to his brother at the back of the house. Because the conversation was none-of-my-business I went and browsed their book cases. I picked up this book - they have an old copy, which i imagine I read as a child, but i can't remember it at all. I'm wading my way through it - it is not a fast read, and the protagonist seems precocious, but I'm interested enough that I am hanging in there.

The first clue only took me two knitting nights, so I am also knitting a pair of socks. Check back here on Thursday, when I w…

Yarnlaong - the one where it is June

Funnily enough, this month I'm reading Golden Fool the second book in the Tawny Man trilogy. Last month I was reading the first. I have actually read some other books in between! If youw ant to follow my reading, you can find me on Goodreads as Sharondblk.
I am knitting the Kate Davies vest Carraig Fhada. I've had the yarn for it since the beginning of 2017, and i can't believe it's taken me this long to start it. I'm knitting it in the specified yarn, Kate Davies' Buchaille, and loving it.  It's such a fun knit: beautiful yarn, intuitive pattern with a great rhythm to it.
This weekend is a long weekend here (Queen's Birthday, even though it isn't, biologically speaking, the Queen's birthday)
I am looking forward to going in to the three day weekend with such a compelling book and fun knitting project on the go. There will, of course, also be some running, some socialising and a lot of sleeping, but it's the reading and knitting that I'm lo…

Yarnalong - the one with Strathendrick

I have finished the colourwork on Strathendrick:

Now "all" I have to do is to kitchener the shoulders - in colourwork, and knit the collar, sleeves and bottom hem. Piece of cake. 

This has been a really fun knit, except for the bit last night where I found out somehow I have an extra repeat on the back. I'm sure I can sort that out though, it's already meant to be hugely oversized.

I'm also enjoying my read - Raising Stony Mayhall, by Daryl Gregory. Every book he writes is innovative and completely different. This one is about zombies - but not really. I recommend.

I've got jury duty tomorrow, and there is some discussion about whether I will, or won't be allowed to take my needles into the court. The info they sent said "no knitting needles" but I've been through court security before, with Signature Stilletos, no less. So I think I'll leave the giant jumper at home, and take a pair of socks on 2mm bamboo needles, and see how I go. In any c…
