yarnalong - the one double memoir and double cat

I was so excited by how my handspun Baby Surprise came out that I wanted to make a matching hat. Naturally I chose Elizabeth Zimmermann's baby bonnet, which is on the very next page of The Opinionated Knitter. So far it looks odd, but I know to trust Ms Zimmerman.

I'm reading  Dewey  by Vicki Myron. It one of those single topic passion books. It's not bad, but the good bits aren't when she's carrying on about how amazing this cat is, but when Vicki is sharing her opinions, and passion for the small town where she lives.

I'm listening to Love Your Sister, by Samuel and Connie Johnston. It's narrated by them, and I'm loving it. it's a very moving memoir - Connie has cancer three times,and is terminal. That's not a spoiler, they tell you that in the introduction. 

So a very satisfactory week. See what Ginny and the rest of the yarnalong are up to, over at her blog Small Things.   

For those of you following along at home, that's Princess Daisy, the least likely of our brood? coven? pack? of cats to photobomb,
