Very Slightly Knitting Related Reading

My current book is only peripherally knitting related, but it's a fun read:
"Three Bags Full: A Sheep Detective Story" by Leonie Swan. It's about a flock of sheep investigating the murder of their shepherd. Led by Miss Maple, the smartest sheep in Glenkill and possibly the smartest sheep in the world (not that that would be difficult...), the flock sets out to discover who killed their shepherd and why.
It's quite imaginative, and fun to see the world from a sheep's perspective. We would do well to consider things from their POV.
On the knitting front, I finished the 2nd sleeve of the Kauni cardigan last night while watching the Mariners LOSE AGAIN. Boo! I just have the collar and front ribbing to do, then it is finis! Also worked a bit on the felted squirrel project. His body and face are done, plus one little arm. Just the 2nd arm, the tail, then off to be felted and stuffed.
My four hooligans are due to arrive shortly to spend the day. We have been 'typing' books: the twins dictate their thoughts to me and I type them and print the results. We've had many pages devoted to animals, not to touch them, how to stay out of danger from snakes, what they eat, where they live, etc. Maybe we can move on to human beings today!
