Yarn, Yorkshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Yarn Along!

28.5.14 004

My knitting is making slow progress. The back and two fronts are complete, so its on with the first sleeve. Autumn cardigan for Little Miss F.

On the Kindle ,as I took it to Dorset last week, I am reading Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier. The TV series was highly criticized for the muttering. I kept saying to Mr E but they are supposed to be talking in whispers! Followed by, from me, Well that doesn’t happen like that. Only one thing for it, read the book again. Now why oh WHY do TV directors feel they have the right or the need to change things from the original book. Never do they improve on the original. In this case, never mind the sound quality, all the tension and suspense was lost by revealing the secret of Jamaica Inn far too early in the story. And yes the Landlord of Jamaica Inn is at his most dangerous not when he shouts but when he whispers…

It’s a jolly good read-perfect holiday reading.

  1. What a lovely cardi! The color is beautiful.

  2. Beautiful colour of yarn. I watched the TV series of Jamiaca Inn series and thought the book was 10 times better. The muttering I found was quite irritating. Have a good week.

  3. I love the little leaves on the cardigan. That is precious!

  4. Right. I must read it too. I’ve read others by her but not this one, and the muttering was dreadful. I gave up and watched with subtitles because I really, really wanted to see it.

    • Thank you, and the book is a good read. We turned up the volume on TV, mostly I could hear them but poor Mr E struggled.

  5. Nice cardigan pattern, I like the little cable details

  6. I’m so glad I wasn’t alone in finding that dramatisation way off. It’s so long since I read the book I found myself questioning my memory, yet I knew I was right.

  7. The cardi is looking great! I love the colour.
