In the mail, from Jae
Thank you Jae. Ohhh, I'm torn between knitting more mittens and starting an Aran.
At Barnes and Noble today (my pampering stop after the Dentist this A.M.) I picked up the latest Threads (not as great as the last issue, let me say), and on my way out, after having Tea and perusing some books, I walked past a table with "Craft" books on sale.
I scored Volumes Two (Cables) and Three (Colorwork) of the Vogue Stitchionary Books, at 50% off, then another 10% off. Total after tax: $28. For both. I've found that I love the stitch dictionaries, and these have a lot more depth than I first expected. (I just linked to B&N website, where the books are also avail on sale...happy little enabler that I am)
Then, while drinking my tea and flipping through the knitting mag's, I saw an ad for Nordic Fiberarts. The ad read something along the lines of "Some copies left of Norsk Strikkedesign and Poetry in Stitches". What??
Well, thank heavens for cell phones. I called immediately.
Yes, I'm sad to say, both books are going OOP. She told me they have maybe 6 copies left of Poetry in Stitches, and more of Norske Strikkedesign. I've had my copy of Poetry in Stitches for years, but I've really been coveting the Strikkedesign book for the last year or so. So guess what's winging it's way here?
So, just to pick up the link for this post, I clicked on Nordic Fiberarts. Did you see the Selbustrikk book of mittens? Lovely. Different charts than the Selbuvotter. oh my...
ok, put me on your Christmas list, and that book goes on top. I'll even knit you some mittens from it.
I've been listening to books faster than I can change my sidebar.

Lifted from Cidell, who's also Erudite...this one goes out to CarrieK. Carrie, I expect no less than a complete A (I got the A- , I think it had to do with phlegmatic).
