Yarn Along

Knitting: Lancelot sweater, size 2 years for my little knight in Drops Lima.

Reading: I finished Little Women (both parts!), and I'm glad it's over, I mean, it was great and all but I usually don't read books with 777 pages and I was curious to know about Jo March's future. I must admit that I sometimes had trouble with understanding some english verbs and adjectives, so I had to look up a few things, but it wasn't really necessary for understanding the story in its whole. 
Recently, when in Aachen, Germany, we visited a grand bookstore and I always go straight to the international section. A big pile of classics was nicely exposed and I bought a couple. I chose Animal Farm by G. Orwell. (My fiancé bought 1984 and I might read that as well). I haven't read that much though, but until now I like it.

  1. super cute sweater pattern :) you know I read that book as a teen and loved it immensely however, I read it as a mature adult and I found it difficult to get through....and my vocab has improved greatly over the decades!!!

    1. Ha! Ok at least I don't feel like a half illiterate anymore then ;-) I guess the story is very good in its genre, but maybe a bit too lengthy.

  2. I don't nearly read as many classic as I feel I should be reading, but I've been struggling with reading this year so I'm sticking to the somewhat less literary categories ;)

  3. I sometimes find it difficult to read the classics so admire you for doing so. Eek, Animal Farm -- had to read that in school -- it's definitely not what I expected when I first read the title.
    I love the sweater you're knitting -- lovely soft yarn with such a delicate colour -- it's going to look great.
