Yarn Along

Knitting - Kaila Cardigan by Jamieson's of Shetland
I must have yarn to make myself about five cardigans by now.  It's the type of project that seems a bit daunting to me - I'm all about the quick knits - but it's also starting to seem a bit ridiculous that I don't have a cardi in my life that I've made myself.  I do have plenty that my mum made (this one and this one and these ones) so hopefully I can power through and add my own to the wardrobe!  

Tam's mum got me the perfect Christmas pressie - a kit to make the Kaila Cardigan from Jamieson's of Shetland.  I love the yoke cardigan designs so I'm pretty excited to have one of my own.  It's been a bit of a slow process so far since I decided to knit the body as one piece then split for the armholes, so I'm only part way through the ribbing at the moment, but I intend to knit other things alongside it anyway.

Reading - The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer
I picked this up at the library last week since I've seen Alex declare her love for Heyer many times and I do love a book with lots of manners and daft misunderstandings.  I'm completely hooked - it seems like Sophy has come to life and I find myself thinking about her when I'm not reading.  The plot is pretty simple - Sophy comes to stay with her aunt's family after her father goes off on business to South America, and starts wreaking havoc on their orderly and rather dull life.  It took me a while to get used to the writing style (mostly because in one paragraph the character would be referred to by their first name and in the next they were Mr Whatever) but now I can't wait to pick it up again.

Linking up to Ginny's Yarn Along.

What's everyone else making this week?
