Yanalong - the one with the HAPpiness

I am going to be punning on the word hap until I finish the hap I am knitting. So far it's going very well, and growing quickly. I'm loving it. The pattern was very easy to memorise, I'm loving the colours, and it combines my two current things: Kate Davies and Jameson and Smith yarn. 

I've almost finished The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet and it's a winner of a book. I'm unclear whether this is the beginning of a series, but I really hope it is, because I could spend some serious reading time in the universe created here by Becky Chambers.

And finally I'm listening to The Tastemakers, which is non-fiction about food trends. It's quite interesting, although bugs me a tiny bit because the author identifies everything as a trend, from drinking coffee to eating chia seeds, but can't define the difference between a trend and a fad. Despite this, it's an interesting listen, particularly the chapter about superfoods and gluten.  

As usual, I'm playing along with Ginny. Pop over to Small Things, to see what she and everyone else is up to this week.


  1. How nice that the pattern was easy to memorize! I've never ventured beyond knitting dishcloths. I enjoy making them and I think one of the things I like is I know the pattern, so I can pick it up and work on it when I'm chatting or want to work with my hands, but not think too hard! :)

  2. I love patterns that are intuitive. It looks real nice. Enjoy your books!

  3. Lovely yarn you're using, works really well with the pattern

  4. Gorgeous colours - looking forward to lots of hap related puns!
