reading: after taking a short iain m. banks break i'm back on the banks' train of awesomeness reading feersum endjinn. the book is, of course, fabulous. each chapter is broken up into 4 sections, following each of 4 main characters. the 4th of which writes completely phonetically. it's not the easiest thing to read, especially when one's been staying up until after midnight everynight watching olympic curling, so i'm moving pretty slowly through this one.
and kate, the yarn matches the lettering on the cover... that counts, right?!?
knitting: aside from my olympic grannies i'm also working on a pair of fingerless mitts for a friend. it's the hedgerow mitts pattern(rav link) which i tried to knit for myself last year, but the pattern and yarn were not playing well together. this time the results are much more pleasing! this gorgeous orange yarn was a gift from rachel at the time we are living, she dyed it herself and it's the perfect match with this lovely pattern.
so as per usual, now i want to know what you're reading/making!!
