Yarnalong - The one where things are both slow and satisfactory

It's Wednesday, and that means I'm participating in Yarnalong, hosted by Ginny. Pop over to her blog and see what she, and all the other yarnalongers are up to this week.

This week I'm still reading All the Light we Cannot See and still enjoying it. It's slow going, but enjoyable. I just haven't had a lot of time to read this week.

I'm still knitting the Discworld sock club, Mort. I'm almost up to the toe. Of the first sock. And I cast on over a week ago. I'm not sure why it's taken me so long, it's a great pattern, but not overly complicated.

I'm listening to Soul Music  the next Discworld book, which ties in well with the sock, because it;s one of the books that features Death. It's a really good one, and I'm loving it.

I hope you are enjoying your reading, crafting and audio this week. Do share! 


  1. Slow and steady works for me! I am always in a rush and I'm not sure why....

  2. Sometimes I have to say to myself - this is not a race - over and over.

  3. Slow and steady can be good. :^) That Mort sock looks really nice and comfy.

  4. Ooh discworld socks! Must check this out! I have just pre-ordered the new Tiffany Aching book. It takes me forever to finish anything with two small boys and the chaotic life we lead, a sock in a fortnight sounds pretty good to me!

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.
