I've just started reading Lucas by Kevin Brooks. It's written for children and been compared with To Kill a Mocking Bird, which is a big comparison to make. I hope it lives up to expectations because that along with Invisible Man and A Prayer for Owen Meany is one of my all time favourite novels.
So far so good. The setting is a small island off the coast England...you've got me at the island. Then an outsider is introduced, someone on the edge of society that sounds good too. I'll let you know how I get on, I'm only on page 13.
Knitting...at last I'm getting back into it. I've been making lots of little writst-warmers in Donegal Tweed and felting wool, and a scarf to add to some felted projects for an art/craft fair next month. I've just ordered my first ever batch of embroidered labels ever to stitch in them and I'm quite excited.
