Yarnalong - the one where I read like Ursula

Welcome to Yarnalong, where I tell you what I am reading, listening to and knitting each week, and then go link up with everyone else, over at Ginny's blog.

This week I've started reading The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet  by Becky Chamber.  Ursula tweeted that she had really enjoyed this book, and I'm smart enough to follow Ursula's recommendations. In genre apparently its a "space opera" whatever that means. It's cool characters flying around in a slightly rickety spaceship. I'm loving it.

I'm still listening to The Cuckoos Calling, and still loving it. I'm so glad this is a series, and I hope there are lots and lots more written.

And Leon's jumper is still going slowly. It turns out that, while I knew how to do wrap and turn short rows I didn't actually understand them, so I had to rip out the second sleeve cap and start again. Which is fine, I guess. It takes as long as it takes.


  1. The kitty obviously loves your knitting :)

  2. Another Puss wondering why all this fuss about wool and needles lol
    Mine isn't allowed near current work - white knitting + moulting brown cat = not a good look
