Would it surprise you to hear that I'm still not even halfway through A Dance with Dragons? No? It isn't so much the sheer size of the book, as it is, well, the sheer size of the book.
In the past week I have read one of those Eragon books (again, not remembering that I wasn't over-keen the first time around), Mortal Engines (which is AWESOME), as well as finishing Goblet of Fire and Charlotte's Web with Jenna, and starting a bunch of GPTaylor books in the hopes that I hit upon one a good deal more interesting that Tersias (which I found extremely bleak).
But I'm not getting far with Dance with Dragons, even though I am *really* enjoying it. It's just too hefty to carry around, read in the car, or the bath, or any time I'm holding the baby, which rules out just about all of my reading time. *shut-up-about-your-kindle-version-thankyousoverymuch-Ashleigh*
Knitting, weeellll now... I've had a whole week on the beach. *beam*
Happy happy happy. And when this happened...
It's a Faraway So Close in scrap yarn and on bigger circulars, and I am loving it, and it's just zooming along. I don't know what it's for yet... I might not be able to bring myself to part with it. Actually it's nearly done now, but no picture from any more recently than last week!
I started Dvjelue baby helmet hat in the car on the way up north. It worked up fairly slowly but wasn't too tricky for car knitting, though I knitting a six month size and it's only just right for Tali!
The Amazing Maurice was a second hand purchase for Martin, who is really enjoying it, and I'm looking forwards to reading it aloud to Jenna shortly.
The yarn is the Yvestown bright pure wool, and much brighter than that (slightly backlit) picture. I will have to get more of it, because there are just not enough rainbow things in my life!
PS, the orange and blue stripes popped up on auto-post last week after I'd posted them off to a friend - here they are!
