The days just seem to fly by me this month... It's Wednesday again and time for joining a lot of other knitters who also loves to read for Yarn Along and WIP Wednesday. I am using the picture I took for last Wednesday, but which I totally missed to blog about. Sometimes real life takes over. But I'm still reading the same books and knitting/crocheting on the same things ;)
Reading: I seem not to manage to focus on just one book at the moment... So I read a bit here and a bit there ;) I have however finished Dead reckoning. Not as good as the previous Sookie books, but it had some great moments. I've also read about a third of The Land of Painted Caves. It's ok, but it's been a bit much caves and not so much about Ayla and Jondalar and their love story so far...
I haven't had time to practise on my spinning, but I'm really enjoying Spinning in the Old Way. The book makes it looks so easy ;) In one of the Ravelry Book Group we are reading The Elegance of the Hedgehog. I'm not sure if I like the book or not - I haven't read so much yet, so I might make up my mind after a few chapters more. And then there is Napoleon's pyramids - a book I started in March. I had high hopes for this book as it sounded like a version of Indiana Jones ;) It started ok, but then it was on and on about Napoleon and his marching into Egypt. The book didn't get exciting before halfway through. I have a few chapters left and I hope the end will be good.
I'm reading a few more books, some are on hold and some am I reading out loud for the kids. You can check them out here on my Goodreads page.
Knitting: My sweater is still on the needles. I have divided for sleeves now and hope I'll manage to knit it up before May is over. I have also casted on for the Summer Mystery Shawlette by Wendy D. Johnson. And I have crocheted two whales that are waiting to be seamed.
