Hello! Once again I am managing to squeeze in a yarn along post while Bob naps next to me.

Two audiobooks in the car this week. We've just finished Death in Ecstasy and are moving on to The Tiger in the Smoke. I really like these Margery Allingham adaptations.

Reading wise I'm about two thirds of the way through Michel Odent's Do We Need Midwives? I'm absolutely captivated. It's right at the limit of my understanding, and I'm enjoying using my academic reading skills again, even if they are a little rusty.I should be able to write a proper review next week when I have finished it. After my horrific new year book hangover I have had a little splurge on both paper books and kindle recently, so there will be lots more exciting books to come!

I finished putting these little socks together. Aren't they darling? They're a fair bit too big for bob, so I might put them away with an eye on Christmas. I may also get some non-slip pads and make them into slipper socks for him. These will be my January socks for the 2016 sockalong at Marigold's Loft. Instead of a pair a month, I'm hoping to knit six pairs over the year. Now to cast on the next pair!

Sausages' Bluejay would have been finished except that I have decided to add a couple of inches to the hood to accommodate his large head. Still loving both they yarn and the textures of the pattern. I'm not at all dreading having to make another one straight away, which is good!

I'd love to hear what you're knitting and reading at the moment!

  5. That is such a great idea re the non slip pads. I didn't even know you could get those. Hmmm, maybe I need to try knit some myself. This pair is so adorable! Tania at HedgerowHarvest
