My tan tank sweater is really coming along! Working on it is especially dramatic lately, though, because I am not at all sure that I have enough yarn to finish it. On the one hand, the yarn is extremely light and thin, so a small ball of it contains more yardage than a small ball of a thicker yarn. But on the other hand, we are talking about a small ball of yarn. A very tiny one. I have any number of backup plans, including using some more of the cream-colored yarn that is in the neckband – but we’ll see. I’ll let you know how the Countdown to the Last of the Tan Yarn proceeds.
I am still not liking The People in the Trees very much, but I’m plugging along. I am beginning to see that the protagonist, Dr. Perina, is really a terrible human being – neurotic and bitter and envious and. – oddly enough for a doctor – thoroughly disgusted with the human body. I am interested in seeing how he develops as a character when he meets the natives of U’ivu – but at the same time I want to scream because I HAVE READ MORE THAN 150 PAGES AND HE STILL HASN’T MET THE NATIVES OF U’IVU! What is this author thinking?
More soon. Yarn Along is hosted by Ginny on her blog, Small Things.
