I really liked the YouTube shorts series and I just had to read the book! And it was even better than I anticipated! The characters are really well defined and the plot is fun.
I'd recommend watching the series on YouTube or TikTok first, just so you know what you're getting into. Also I think that way it's way more fun to see the differences in the book and also the surprises.

Great progress on the fair isle tank top. While listening to tagged book. I've never read this classic German children's story before.

Watching "All creatures great and small" TV show and knitting a fair isle tank top. This keeps my hands busy when I still can't walk around that much.

Deifio @julesG Thanks! It's a really lovely series. I loved the books too 1mo
Deifio @AmyG and @ravenlee Thanks! I really like how it's coming along. I estimate another month until it's done. I'm slow 🦥 ☺️ 1mo
julesG The slow progress is what annoys me with knitting. I love knitting, don't get me wrong, but by the time I'm done with a large project the weather has changed and I'm no longer interested. 🙄🙄🙄 1mo
Deifio @julesG Sometimes knitting is frustrating. The fair isle pattern is really addictive and fun. Way better than the last jumper I knitted, where the last part was pure boredom. And then I had to undo almost all of my work and redo it because it was waay to big. Ah well, hubby loves his new jumper though ☺️ so it was worth it 1mo
julesG Oh no, frogging (undoing) is the worst. 1mo
Deifio @julesG I had to undo several rows of my tank top too. I already made so many mistakes. But now it seems I got the hang of it. The markers for every 16 stitches of the pattern help a lot too 1mo

This is now book 3 of the year and fills the "author not from an European or North American country" spot.
Evershore went on "one word title" and The Bullet Journal Method went on "non-fiction".

Now things with bullet journaling begins to click. I never really thought about the reason behind specific logs. And I've never done the migration or reflection part!
In short, I didn't do it right. So I'll try again and this time I have specific times set aside for journaling, too.
So worth it to buy this book!

This should be a quick read. Gave this to hubby for Christmas. These are stories about the nights between Christmas and 6. January. When demons and the great hunt plague the honest folk. But also the veil between the present and future is thin and you can make predictions e.g. about your future wife or husband.

1) Feuerzangenbowle, which is mulled wine with a sugar loaf dunked into rum and then burned
2) Little drummer boy
3) reading before the fireplace with a blanket and a cat to pet

Secret Project 4 of the year of the Sanderson. I really liked this one. Lots of action and some heartbreak too. Of the 4 secret projects I liked Tress best, then Sunlit Man, Yumi, and lastly the Frugal Wizard.

Started this book yesterday. A European wide blackout caused by black hat hackers.
The whole scenario sounds familiar with last winters warnings about blackouts due to gas shortages. And also the ransomware catastrophe in a German town administration in 2021.
I hope I can still sleep tonight! 😅

1) Yes, several.
2) It started off alphabetically for the ones that I've already read. And however they came for the tbr. But now they're all squeezed into every bit of space on the bookshelf 🙈

TheSpineView I get #2. Being short on space is my problem. Thanks for playing! 8mo
