The yarn is Red Heart Bella, found on sale at Deramores a few months ago and, I must admit, I'm liking it a lot more now that it's been made up into something. I was in two minds about the colours when it first arrived but now I love it. It reminds me of autumn leaves and cosy log fires.
Reading - I'm nearly finished Testament of Youth! Hallelujah! According to Goodreads, I've been reading it since April 23rd, which is just insane. I didn't actually read it exclusively in that time (I had a bit of a mental block a couple of hundred pages in and switched to smaller books for a few weeks) but I'm glad I persevered until the (almost) end because it's a wonderful, in depth look at life for a generation of young adults before, during and after the First World War. I've read a lot about the second war but not so much the earlier one, so it's interesting to get a better look at what went on at that time.
What's everyone else been reading and creating lately?
