I'm so enjoying reading the tale of Orleanna, Leah, Adah, Rachel and Ruth May in The Poisenwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver that I don't want it to end, which is probably why I'm also readingThe Elephant Vanishes by Haruki Murakami at the same time. Also because it's lighter and fits in my bag . It's a collection of short stories, each one is so diverse and surreal that I realise why Murakami has been compared to many other writers...I can definitely see the Kafka comparison now.
And I've been knitting this little jacket that H asked me to make. It was nice to follow a pattern for a change, and quick to do as it uses double knitting wool and is short with no cuffs or buttonholes.
I'm linking over to yarn along today where people share what they are reading and knitting. I found it on fairly new-to-me blog 'small things' written by Ginny Sheller. I love her diverse extended family, that she home-schools her children and that their names sound like they've come right out of a storybook. That she makes amazing gifts for her friends and family. I also love the way she writes, how she says 'fall' instead of autumn and 'I am wanting to' instead of 'I want to'.
Why don't you pop over to her blog you may like to see what others are reading and knitting...and maybe you can join in too...
