Another catch up

I know I posted a lot of catch up alpaca photos on Saturday, but a few more catch ups for you.

Knitting:

I have the back yoke done of boxed and cabled:

The construction is interesting--you knit the back yoke, then pick up stitches for the front (two sides), and then I guess you knit the back and then the sleeves.This is the whole back yoke. It needs blocking because right at the center it is a bit poofy--the back was a bunch of short rows.

It is a pretty cable though.

Reading:

"The Lost Book of the Grail" by Charlie Lovett. It is the story set in modern times of people in Barchester looking for a lost book that could indicate where the Grail is. It goes back in time to how the book got 'lost' in the first place and now I want to go to Glastonbury and visit all the King Arthur places.

Watching:
-the new season of "House of Cards" (though I took a snooze during it last night)
-the new season of "Rake" (Australian show)
-the new season of "Poldark" because Ross Poldark is a cutie (yes, Tim knows about my little crush on Ross Poldark).

Now that is a catch up!

I like the way the cables look in the brown yarn--good progress.
