Nothing to see here, with a side serving of hysteria and confusion

I made a pair of socks to match my Stasis. I finished them on Tuesday, and left them on the arm of the couch. On Wednesday, I put them in my handbag and took them to the pub, because I was going to ask Skip to take photos for me. I forgot, until we were leaving, and then it was dark and we couldn't be bothered. The socks never left my bag: but I also don't remember seeing them in bag at any point in the evening. 
This morning I wondered where the socks were, but we leave the house 15 minutes after the alarm goes off, so it was a pretty cursory look. I rang the pub at noon, and they said they hadn't seen them, although the guy definitly didn't look. When I got home tonight, I looked everywhere I can think off - and my house is a bit minimalist, there isn't a lot of anywhere for a pair of socks to hide. Leon rang the pub again, and this time they definitly looked. They even looked more and rang him back. 

So where are they?

That's the mystery. They could conceivable have come out of my bag at the pub, but nowhere else - we walked to and from without stopping and I'm carrying a Mimco bucket bag - it's shaped like this one: 

Nothing is falling out of this when I'm walking down the street. 
Contributing to the feeling of unease, is that the other day I put my work pass in my bike pannier at the end of the day. My ID had 3 parts, in separate plastic pockets (one's the picture ID, one for the lifts and one for the office doors) attached to a lanyard. When I got in to work the next day, the one to open the work door was gone. The pass had not left my bag after leaving the building and yet it has never shown up.
I have no idea what is going on. Maybe someone is gaslighting me. Leon says it's not him...but then he would, wouldn't he.

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 where it's May

I know I shouldn't be surprised at the normal passing of time, but I am! Especially since I missed April's yarnalong because I was on holidays in Scotland

Now, as if to continue that holiday for as long as possible, I am knitting Kate Davies' Highland Rogue scarf for Leon, in Scottish yarn that I bought at Edinburgh Yarn Fest. It's nearly done - currently about a metre seventy, I think I'll knit until that ball of yarn is finished.


Off the Scottish theme, I'm reading, or rather re-reading, Robin Hobb's Fool's Errand, the first book of the second Fitz trilogy.I'm just loving it. I don't remember anything from last time - about 15 years ago - but Fitz is no longer a whiny teenager, but an approaching middle aged man. I'm glad I'm enjoying it, it took me a while to find a good book this time. i actually DNFd a novel by my favourite romance author - I found I just didn't care about romance, and I struggled through an urban fantasy set in…

The yarn along is back!

Ginny is now doing yarnalong monthly, and I am so excited! Pop over there to see what everyone is up to this month:

 It's actually good, because my reading has been all over the place. After finishing Royal Assassin I read a trilogy of  Christmas stories set in Rachael Herron's Darling Bay. these were, of course, delightful. Then I started a review copy for a book called 

Eventually I settled down into The Sultan's Wife by Jane Johnson. I'm enjoying it - set in Morocco, so far it seems like a sort of romance between a eunuch and  a captured English woman.



The knitting is going well. After finishing Stasis jumper, I decided to make a pair of socks using the same yarn and motif: pretty, straightforward and simple. Loving it so far.

In the absence of the Yarnalong, I've taken to linking up with "It's Monday, what are you reading" over at The Book Date. There is a marked absence of knitting, but it's a good place to see what other people are reading.
