I tried to tell him it was Yarnalong day....the day knitting and books are featured, not the furry boy. He was having none of it. The camera comes out and he hurls himself on the chair...and immediately poses himself so nonchalantly .... like, ho-hum. I've been here all morning. Trust me. Thirty seconds ago he was napping on the vent.
So, ignore Fred. It's far easier to take his picture than it is to get him out of the picture.
On to 'yarnalong'....
I finished reading Late Nights on Air by Elizabeth Hay and liked it a lot. I 'won' this in a give-away and decided I would pass it along, with the only condition being that when the recipient finishes it, it will again be passed along. If you are interested please let me know in the comments. We'll make this a rather quick giveaway....I'll let the winner know next Wednesday.
I just started A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles, the author of Rules of Civility. The year is 1922--the place, Moscow-- and Count Rostov has found himself under house arrest in the Hotel Metropol where he has lived for the past 4 years--banished from his suite of rooms to an attic chamber---for the sin of publishing a poem that the powers-that-be think might be interpreted as a call to action again the reining Bolsheviks. The story of how he copes, the characters with whom he mingles, and the little girl he finds he must protect has quickly drawn me in! So far so good!
Knitting....something I can knit on while reading, so it must be simple. Garter stitch matinee jacket by Debbie Bliss is a repeat knit for me, which happens rarely, but this one is so cute! The blue version is nearly finished, so I'm thinking a pink version might be next up to get me through the novel. Lot's of babies due soon....maybe a white one, too?!?
