First, let me say that I love, love, love my library. I love libraries in general…but my local library puts up with our knitting group for 2+ hours each week! Yes, we are down in the small conference room – but one or more of them always pop in to see what we are knitting each week. Someday I dream that we can teach one of them to knit but until then I was tickled to find this article online – do you think I should give them a copy? I’m sure they read the Library Journal – I did and I was only a lowly assistant!
So, Ruth and I joined SAM4 KAL – that’s Sock A Month #4 Knit along – and we’ve been amazed at people who are already DONE with their August socks. So, we challenged each other – well, she challenged me anyway 😉 – to get started today! So here is my proof:
The toes are done on some sock for J3 using Night Lights Superwash Merino from Cavyshops.
And, look!! Birthday books are already here!!!!
My Dad and S-Mom sent me $$ for my crappy birthday (you can read about that on my other blog eventually) – and I bought books!! Knitting Books!! Now I’m eagerly awaiting these titles:
- Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Knitter’s Almanac
- The Knitters Book of Finishing Techniques
- Sensational Knitted Socks
- and, because it was soooo cheap and I love the Dr Bag pattern I’ve seen: Knit 2 Together: Patterns and Stories for Serious Knitting Fun
Can’t wait to get them!!! Now I’m off to whine on my other blog about my crappy birthday. Sigh.
