Yarnalong -the one with the balcony

I don’t get to do this as much as I used to, but one of my favourite things to do is to sit on my back balcony in the time between getting home from work and making dinner, have a drink and sit in the sun and read or knit. Today I got to do this for the first time in ages, and as a bonus I have slice left over from the weekend.

And on my balcony today I’m knitting the Hap for Harriet. I have 10 more repeats to go. It’s been a remarkably quick, simple knit. I’m listening to Nick Earls Wisdom Tree. It’s a series of five novellas, the first of which I listened to when it first came out. I figured since I have less time to listen than I  used to, so I’d listen to some shorter things. I’m really enjoying the second novella, so I guess it was a good decision.
I’m reading Peter F Hamilton’s A Night Without Stars . It’s the last of his Commonwealth novels and I’ll be happy to leave that world behind. I cared more about the characters in the earlier books. That said, this is starting to pick up speed and interest. It’s a big book, so I expect you’ll see it here for the rest of the month, if not longer.
And that’s another week full of knitting, reading, afternoon tea and fun. Pop over to Ginny’s blog Small Things, to see what she and the rest of the Yarnalong have been doing this week.
