WIPs & Books: Discombobulated

I'm not really back into the swing of things after the holidays, the house is in chaos now that we are out so much of the day and I haven't done any knitting since finishing Nuvem - the 'Ta-dah' post is here if you missed it. Is anyone else still feeling discombobulated, or is it just me?  Maybe it's the sleep deprivation (they have managed to stay in bed until 6 for the last two mornings, so things are a little better today - yippee!) or perhaps it's because there are so many ideas swimming around my head at the moment. I'm not sure.

Regardless, there is a new kind of project in the works today... 
A new crochet project
It's nearly done so I'll show you more on Friday.

On my Kindle this week is Fremont by Elizabeth Reeder, a very interesting and almost magical literary novel which touches on infidelity, prejudice and family life using the most evocative prose. I'm about half way through and quite fascinated by the characters so there'll be more to follow on that next week, provided I can stay awake long enough to finish it.

I'll be back tomorrow with some handy links for the Next Step Sock Knitalong which officially starts next Thursday (there are over 50 people on the Ravelry group so far, and most are knitting along) and don't forget the Unravel giveaway which runs until the 1st February.

Today's links are: WIP Wednesday and Yarn Along. Have a great day x


  1. I'm intrigued - that ribbon looks so cool!

  2. If I wasn't already overcommitted I'd sign up for the KAL. I still might because I'm a little afraid of one of the sock patterns I've chosen. But I have the yarn so I'm going to have to give it a go :)

  3. Im totally sleep deprived to with a 8 week old would love to join the knit along but have so many unfinished projects I need to complete first. My house is also in need ofa good clean.xx

  4. Hmmmmm, can't wait to see on Friday!
