I’ve been really busy this weekend… well, just where knitting and prooflistening is concerned. 😉 I had 9.3 hrs of listening “to do” when I started on Friday. Now I’m down to just 5.1 hours.  Anyway my “colorful cable socks” are finally done and they turned out just as I hoped they would.

My "colorful cable socks"

I love the colors and just couldn’t resist modeling them against the sky, especially as we finally had the first really fine and even warm (almost warm) autumn day. Hope it stays that way for a bit!

Hermione Mitts

With the socks finished, I started “Hermione Mitts” today. I’m using the pattern I already used for the Hermione Hat, only slightly modified. Wonder how they will turn out! 😀

Today I cataloged “Priester und Detektiv” by Gilbert Keith Chesterton, one my BCing projects. It’s a collection of well known Father Brown (Pater Brown) stories.

Pater Brown ist ein englischer katholischer Pfarrer, der als Hobby Kriminalfälle löst. Dies gelingt ihm, indem er sich in den Täter hineinversetzt, dabei das Verbrechen selbst begeht, wie er sagt. Dabei ist er aber weniger daran interessiert, Verbrecher der irdischen Gerechtigkeit auszuliefern, sondern er will sie zu Gott führen; eine freiwillige Beichte des Täters genügt ihm. Dabei spielt es für ihn keine Rolle, welches Amt diese Person bekleidet. (Zusammenfassung von Wikipedia)

Here is my recording of the last story in the book. It’s called “Die drei Todeswerkzeuge”.

Here is the whole audiobook! Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did: http://librivox.org/priester-und-detektiv-pater-brown-geschichten-by-chesterton-g-k/
