Yarn Along: stacks of books at my bedside :)
Knitting: I just finished turning the heel on the Toots socks. They're lovely, and coming along nice and quickly (so satisfying to knit little things). I'm not being very perfectionist about remembering where I am with the lace bit, oh gosh, I can't keep my eye on the pattern with our days being as busy as they are and as soon as I put them down I'm lost!
Reading: I got The Long Earth over the weekend and read it in one sitting. I had read a lot of negative reviews and decided not to bother with it, but you know, when you see these things being practically *given* away... I loved it. The only criticism I can really get behind is that this one incredible book would have easily made twenty incredible books - there is *so much* packed in there.
(I also got 2000 Kisses a Day: Gentle Parenting through ages and stages, and read that in one go too. The opposite applies - this one has been so talked up, everywhere, and I found it really simplistic and expected a bigger book somehow. I'd call it a good basic introduction to concepts.)
Oh, and I'm half way through Mirror Wakes. Guess who is doing a *lot* of reading in the garden wrapped in a big woolly cardigan this week? This is the state my bedside table is in right now!
Sharing along with Ginny's Yarn Along again this week. :)
