I'm knitting and reading things that are not my usual choices this week.
The knitting is a mesh triangular scarf which I'm doing with a yarn which my mum bought back from one of her crafty outings. The colours in it range from browns, yellows and greens into turquoise and lavender. I like it but I would have never picked it up myself as it's not a combination I would usually be drawn to. This is excellent as my collection of greeny/purple scarfs is probably in danger of getting out of hand! When I am knitting it up against my turquoise cardigan it looks great.
I am also reading books which are a little away from my usual choices. I tried a Terry Pratchett book years ago and couldn't get into it. Someone recently suggested I try, 'The Wee Free Men' so after having it sitting around for ages, I'm giving it a go. I'm still not sure to be honest!
The audio book I have on the go is called 'The Garden of Evening Mists' by Tan Twan Eng. I am very excited to say that I chose this from my library's free audio book service which has been going for a while but I have been unable to access. They have updated their system and it's now easy to use. I am really enjoying this so far, it is incredibly atmospheric.
I also just finished listening to 'The Woman Who Went to Bed For a Year' by Sue Townsend. 'Nuff said!!
Gaby and I started listening to this at the weekend......
.....I love Jacqueline Wilson's books. We found this and more whist having a mooch around the charity shops the other day.
I was really pleased with myself until I got home and realised that I got rid of the cassette player in the kitchen! We do have one in the house, just not where I'm usually listening to books, but they were a bargain!
