Books I Read in December, January and February

The Girl with All the Gifts (Mike Carey)
The Minds Eye (Oliver Sacks)
Nothing Left to Lose (Kirsty Mossley)

I have read (start to end) just three books in three months. The most recent, The Girl with All the Gifts, barely squeezed into the end February (and only because I was too ill to do anything else). The Minds Eye was started sometime over the Christmas break and finished mid January. The third, Nothing Left to Lose, could have been anytime -- it was a free Kindle book and I used it as an experiment with the Kindle iOS app.

Two of the books I'd vaguely recommend if you're into that kind of thing. The Girl with All the Gifts joins an ever growing trend for post-apocalyptic novels but is fairly easy reading. The Minds Eye is by no means my favourite Sacks book, but it was interesting in parts for sure.

Me Made May: Week 3 (and a sewing FO)

Another week, another cardigan:

This week I've mostly been wearing my Shetland Shorty cardigan. I love this style of cardigan in the summer and I still plan to knit another.

Also me made this week is my first 'dressmaking' project. A Tilly and the Buttons Bridgitte scarf. More of my summer dresses are yellow than any other colour so I picked out this bright yellow spotted cotton. The fabric was shorter than the width called for (115mm) but works well enough for keeping hair off my face.
