This is a Wednesday post about books and knitting. If you are looking for children's books to read, do check out Lissa's and Melanie's comments about kids' books and competence on yesterday's post.
In other reading news: tra la laaaa! I have FINISHED How Not To Be Wrong. It was well worth reading -- I really did enjoy it. It's just exceedingly rare for me to spend so long reading a single book. I dove right into the fifth Barsetshire chronicle, The Small House at Allington.
I am chugging along on my Metronome. I have 7 more purled rows of cream and then it will be time for the Bold Green Adventure Moment. Can you stand the suspense?
This project has taught me that I produce knitted garter stitch at a slightly different gauge from purled garter stitch. Who knew? I think it should all sort itself out in the blocking, though.
I did a fair amount of knitting and reading aloud over the weekend while we were traveling. Stella and I finished E. Nesbit's dragon stories. She wants to read them again right away. I might see if we can make a little more headway in The Book of Three. I am certain she will love Eilonwy when we get to Spiral Castle, but right now it's just Taran and Gwydion and Gurgi, before we know that Gurgi is a big softy.
There are lots more Yarn Along posts at Ginny's.
