Yarnalong -the one where haps are happening

Usually, if I haven't been reading and knitting anywhere more interesting I snap a picture on my coffee table. This week I decided to take the picture of what I see from my couch. I quite like my view -some trees, the sky, the house across the road. It's all good.


This week I've been knitting my first shawl from The Book of Haps, Montbretia. It's been going very well, although I'm a bit worried because I only have 30 grams of the green left, but no one else has run out of yarn. Maybe I actually am two thirds of the way through? I'm at the end of the large amount of green. Although I only cast on on Friday, so it seems unlikely that I would be that close to finishing.

 I'm reading Lines of Departure by Marco Kloos. It's the second in a science fiction / space opera / military series. I'm listening to Officers and Gentlemen by Evelyn Waugh, military ficution (satire?) set in the Second World War. I mention them in the same paragraph because both booth are the second in a series. Actually, the main thing they have in common is pointing out that war is ridiculous, frustrating and futile, while still spending large swathes of the book describing battles.

As usual on a Wednesday I'm joining Ginny for Yarnalong. Pop over to her blog to see what she, and the rest of the yarnalong are up to this week.
