Yarn Along

knitted ducks aurian book library

Knitting - The ducks are coming along nicely!  I've been on quite a knitting bender the past few days - so much so that my hand is starting to turn claw-like after a few hours.  Maybe I'll switch to crochet today.  I couldn't find a copy of the pattern that I used for making my last duck so I went a slightly different way and adapted another one.  I'm debating whether or not to add some colourful scarves to each one.  Might make them more interesting?  I've already had requests from people at work for their own ducks so I may lose a few before I get to the craft fair...

Reading - Aurian by Maggie Furey
This was the book that appeared in double quick time after I ordered it at the library.  I saw the sequel books in a charity shop and figured they sounded interesting, but obviously they were no use without the first one.  I'm enjoying Aurian so far - I imagined it might be a little like Christopher Paolini's Inheritance series, but the writing is nowhere near as good, although it's too early to say whether the story will live up to that one.  Still, it's nice to get absorbed in a series again after the disappointment that was Outlander.
