Yarn Along!

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.
