Yarnalong: Dave & Scoop

IMG_0635 (1280x853)
Nothing too complicated in this week’s Yarnalong post – I’m organising moving back to New Zealand and it’s taking up all my brain power!

Knitting: Dave Socks by Rachel Coopy in Socks Yeah

More simple socks, because I love them so. Although, as you can see from the picture, these have been ripped back. I tried a different pick up technique (knitting through the horizontal bars rather than the vertical loops), which created a extra ‘bit’ of fabric inside the heel which I thought might be uncomfortable.

Reading: Scoop by Evelyn Waugh

Yesterday I finished The Light Between Oceans. It was an okay read – a little bit sentimental and repetitive, but hey, there was a lighthouse and it did a really good job of looking at how a small town in Australia would’ve been affected by the loss of men from World War One. Which wasn’t the point of the story – it was just sprinkled throughout.

Tonight I’ll start Scoop, another one by Evelyn Waugh that I picked up from Basement City Books.

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