Yarnalong - the one with the final bit of transport

Remember how I took every form of transport known to man a fortnight ago? Well, I was missing just one thing, suburban trains. But today I got to remedy that, knitting my way to Dandenong for work. Yay?

My Char jumper has been knitting up ridiculously fast. It's easy, pleasant and a well written pattern.

I'm reading Rachael Herron's latest book The Ones Who Matter Most. It's a good read so far, family centered fiction, easy to read but still emotionally challenging.

I'm listening to Evelyn Waugh's Men At Arms. I'm enjoying it, I didn't really know what to expect, but some of it reminds me of Catch 22, in that it catalogues the absurdities of war and bureaucracy. The narrator has the perfect upper crust English accent and I'm very pleased it's the first of a trilogy.  

And that's another week of reading, knitting and catching trains everywhere for me. Do pop along to Ginny's blog to see what she and the rest of the yarnalong are up to this week.


  1. I never had any luck knitting in transport - stitches slip off, stitch markers get lost and my notes always disappear :) I am glad you are enjoying your on-the-go knitting time much more!

  2. I just added "The Ones Who Matter Most" to my list to read. It sounds like you had some nice knitting time while traveling.

  3. Enjoy your knitting time while traveling!! That makes the journey so much better.
