Yarn Along

Yarn Along 3.25.15

It’s hard to portray in a photo how long Jill’s scarf is getting, but I estimate it’s about three feet long. Soon will come that period of time when every few rows I’ll tell myself that surely it must be almost done, and then I’ll try to wrap it around my neck and realize it is nowhere close. I spent most of 2013 having that repetitive dialogue with myself. I’m still loving the color and texture of the yarn and am enjoying working on it.

And what’s that, you ask, poking out from under the yarn? Yes, I am officially diving head first into Lake R.R. Martin. I am reading Game of Thrones. I’m only about 32 pages into it, and I feel as if those pages took me forever to read because I’m still trying to figure out all the interrelationships between the characters and making sense of all the fantastical elements. In brief, there are some knights and some kids and some wolf puppies and this one guy who, in the words of a favorite former professor of mine, is a deep, deep asshole.

I’ll have more to say on Game of Thrones soon. I hope everyone is enjoying their Wednesday!

    Beautiful scarf!! I have read the first two books in the series but ended up quitting when my husband didn’t really like the next several but I always think I should return and keep going!

      Is that how it’s supposed to work? Why can’t it work that way with The Eyre Affair?

      • badkitty1016 says:

        Not the same. I recommended The Eyre Affair to you. If you read and love Game of Thrones and recommend I read it for a reading challenge I will have to read it from beginning to end. 🙂

    Besides, The Eyre Affair is way shorter.
