Yarnalong: Ursula, Deca, Prophets, Shepherds

yarnalong-20150722

Totally cheating on my self-imposed 140 character limit by giving each project or book its own post. But hey, my blog, my rules, my way.

Knitting: Ursula Cardigan in Jamieson & Smith 2 ply Jumper Weight

Finishing knitting! Just sewing in the ends & blocking & sewing on the button band & the snaps & the buttons…so, totally not finished.

Decca Socks in Little Dipper Yarns

Just finished these. They are so cute, I want to knit everything in Coop Knits Socks Volume 2. I think I’ll try Otis next…or maybe Dave

Listening: Prophets of Doom by Dan Carlin

Not one of Carlin’s better podcasts, as it lacked sources & themes. But he knew that & apologised in an entertaining way, so that’s okay.

In Our Time by Melvyn Bragg and BBC Radio Four

An interesting show on Prester John, a (probably) mythical Eastern Christian king from the Middle Ages & the West’s (futile) search for him.

Reading: The Shepherd’s Life: A Tale of the Lake District by James Redbank

I’m still reading Redbank’s book, but at least now I am enjoying it a little more, because he’s opening up his world view as he gets older.

See what everyone else is knitting/reading/listening to over on the original Yarnalong.
