I recently came across this blog with its weekly 'Yarn Along' - knitting and reading - and thought I'd dive in. You see, I've only just rediscovered the joy/love/exhaustion of the unputdownable book, having received a little shipment from my favourite online book place a few weeks back. First there was 'Room' by Emma Donoghue, and now this - the best rollicking good read I've had in ages. The sort of book that I think about all day, look forward to all evening and then, when bedtime is nearing, pulls me in and holds my attention, even when sleep is wooing. I've had a few very late nights with this book in the past week. And it's a book about farming, of all things! It's so well-written and like a long pointy finger beckoning to the large part of me that wants to get out of this big city and do the country thing.
And as for the knitting, well, there's always knitting. This one's a hat, but it's a bit of a secret, a surprise for someone who pops in here occasionally. So I won't give too much away. Suffice to say, I'm loving working with this beautiful yarn and that twisted rib is making me very happy.
