Yarnalong: Nut Hap and the Book of Haps

2016-10-05 08.03.57.jpg

Knitting: Nut Hap, by Jen Arnall-Culliford in Ashford Tekapo 8-ply. After a (checks archives …) two month, almost to the day, absence, my Nut Hap has resurfaced!  Geez, about time, huh?  I’ve begun the penultimate tuck, so hopefully, the end is nigh!  The dropping temperatures combined with my desire to finish something so I can cast on something else without guilt are spurring me on!

Reading: The Book of Haps, edited by Kate Davies and Jen Arnall-Culliford.  Returning to my lovely hap and receiving a newsletter from Kate Davies Designs regarding a forthcoming Islay-inspired book (squee!), I realized I haven’t properly sat down with my lovely print copy of the Book of Haps.  I ordered the book when I was in New Zealand, and it sat waiting for my return to the United States … and what did it get for its patience? Being shoved on a bookshelf indifferently as I unpacked the apartment! I began reading the essays last night though, and they are deserving of a lot of time.  I’m so excited to see what Kate and Tom have up her sleeve for the new project!

As always, you can see what others are knitting and reading over at the original Yarnalong post!  And I’d love to hear what you’re enjoying this week in the comments!

I’ll be back tomorrow with some sock-related news — til then, happy knitting and reading!

  1. Your variation is going to be spunky; I like it as imagining you standing out among green hills and such you’d stand out saying this is how I roll. You know, I’m not really a shawl person but there are haps in that book I really like.

  2. I need to sit and read my copy soon as well! Mine was purchased on my trip to Europe and then shoved in the bookshelf as I was unpacking my suitcase!
