Happy Wednesday! This month I decided to join Ginny’s Yarn Along again to share what I am reading and some knit update. It’s been awhile since I read anything in Russian and I missed it so much – I love the diverse and unique Russian literature. The main reason is that it is not easy to get the book in the original language for the reasonable price when you are on the other side of the world. And though I love the feeling of holding the real book in my hands, my new Kindle definitely has its advantages. I am almost done with Yefremov’s Bull’s Hour – it is a third book in trilogy, a sequel of Andromeda Nebula and The Heart of the Serpent. It is a space fiction tale that portraits the utopia world where people on Earth reached the perfect state of the government, where there were no wars, nations, weather cataclysms, etc, all people had great health and devoted themselves to science and work. Though it does contain lots of communist propaganda, it is still a fascinating read with great ideas and interesting point of view of what it would be like to have the society like that. It is like the opposite of Orwell’s 1984.

As for knitting I am working on a summer sweater in Daisy yarn and using the cutest stitch markers from Creating with Sticks. There is a test knit going on of my cardigan that I designed awhile ago for YOTH yarns and one of the testers were using these markers – I ordered them immediately!

The markers come in two sizes – the bigger size can fir the needle up to US 17 needle! And I am even wearing one as a ring right now, because they are just too adorable!

    those are tempting stitch markers….hmm. You’d think there would be an easy way to get books in Russian from half way around the world in this day and age. Someone should fix that for you!! I’m reading a mystery book on my kindle and love it.

    Love those cat stitch markers! And I recently also got a kindle, despite my love for the paper book, and it is so freaking convenient.

    Those cat stitch markers are just too cute. I have developed quite the obsession with cute progress markers. Love seeing these. I may have to purchase some myself! Thank you for sharing.
