Look at that, isn't it a sight? I'm a train commuter and my husband always drops me off and picks me up at the local station. But today I drove myself (cause I'm a big girl!!). When I got off the train my older sister was in the parking lot having dropped a friend off in my town (she lives 20 minutes away). She, four of her 5 kids and her friend and friends daughter were at the Bronx Zoo today. I'm getting off topic. Anyway, her friend gave her these 5 books for me and they were waiting in my car for me! I never lock my car, like ever. Or my house. Fun fact.
I got, from Left to Right (Amazon Links):
Reader's Digest Knitters Handbook by Montse Stanley (what a name) This link is to a softcover, I have the hardcover version
and my initial favorite so far...and the only one without an Amazon preview...
I have a thing for craft books. Like the way a crackhead has a thing for crack. Or on a more positve note, the way Mozart had a thing for harpsichords. Just love 'em. I keep a quickly rotating stack of books by my bed and by my knitting chair. I like all kinds, knitting, sewing, embroidery, crocheting - I'll try anything. Crafter's Choice is my dealer, they're so cheap! But I'll take books from Amazon, yarn stores, library sales. I'm not fussy. I love to read Elizabeth Zimmerman before bed, she's like my knitting fairy godmother.
I have a head cold and feel like crap, but this has cheered me immensely. The plan is to hit the sack early nd get some lovely morning light to photograph those two hats I talked about. Is there anything more annoying than reading about someone else's procastination? What a downer.
In happier news there's plenty of pumpkin pie downstairs since it turns out I'm the only one who likes it. Yeah me! Modern family, pumpkin pie and sack time.
