Yarn Along: Newt's Hufflepuff Scarf and "All Our Wrong Todays"

Yarn Along is a weekly link-up hosted by Ginny at the Small Things blog about two of the best things in life: books and knitting.

I'm finally about to cast on for a Newt Scamander Hufflepuff scarf, a request from a friend. I couldn't find any yarn in the right gray marled colorway here in Hawaii and it's really hard to tell something like that online (trust me, I spent hours looking), so my wonderful mom went on a shopping trip to Joann for me and mailed the yarn out. I think the colors she picked out are perfect! (She also gave me the adorable little niffler Funko for Christmas.)

I just started an advance-read copy of "All Our Wrong Todays" by Elan Mastai (out February 7). I'm about halfway in and I'm totally enjoying it! Here's a snippet from the book blurb:
"You know the future that people in the 1950s imagined we'd have? Well, it happened. In Tom Barren's 2016, humanity thrives in a techno-utopian paradise of flying cars, moving sidewalks, and moon bases, where avocados never go bad and punk rock never existed . . . because it wasn't necessary. Except Tom just can't seem to find his place in this dazzling, idealistic world, and that's before his life gets turned upside down. Utterly blindsided by an accident of fate, Tom makes a rash decision that drastically changes not only his own life but the very fabric of the universe itself. In a time-travel mishap, Tom finds himself stranded in our 2016, what we think of as the real world. For Tom, our normal reality seems like a dystopian wasteland."
