Yarn-along, the one where it feels like Friday

It's Wednesday but it feels like Friday because I have the next two days off work. Even so, for Ginny and the rest of the Yarnalong it's definitely Wednesday. Go to Ginny's blog to check out what she and the other participants are knitting and reading this week.
I'm knitting my mother's jumper. I'm still amazed how much more I have done this week, compared with last week, and I'm still enjoying knitting it. Ten centimeters more on the body, most of one sleeve and then it will be time to steek.
I'm reading Katabasis, the fourth book in the Mongoliad series.  It's good, and I really want to find out what happens to the characters. But some of the authors have changed since the previous book and I don't think it's quite as strongly written.
And I'm listening to Persuasion by Jane Austen.  I'm enjoying it, particularly since it's read by one of my favourite narrators -  Juliet Stevenson. I just love her voice, it's very British and proper, particularly for this type of book.
And that's me for another Yarnalong week. Now, I've got two days off before the weekend and there is going to be some serious knitting, reading, listening and weaving in that time.
