well due to the fact that my family and friends read this blog at times, i can't really post about my current projects because they are gifts! so i apologize in advance for the lack of knitting pics. i'll be able to share a few possibly in the next week or so..
i dropped by the new joann's store that opened a month or so ago. it was rewarding! i have been looking at this book for quite awhile and wavering on purchasing it
i took a crochet class this last summer and have forgotten almost everything, but this book inspires me. so tonight, i came across it at joanns and happened to have a 40% off coupon so i snagged it. i drooled over the pages tonight, promising myself i would pick up crochet again in january. joann's has a large selection of books that changes so ofen you need to buy anything that catches your eye. they also had that new book, i believe it is called knitting on the edge, it is all knitted borders. that book is great too! maybe if they have it this weekend i will pick it up, i have some 50% coupons but haven't decided if i want to brave the crowds.
back to crochet...i imagine myself making this fine garment
i have been on a book buying spree lately with plenty of 'me' projects bookmarked for january. if i am working contract for my current employer then i may just have the time to get some of them done.
for those of you who may not keep current with martha, the december issue has a lovely article on knitting socks (and stockings). when surfing her website for knitting related content (i should say 'new' knitting content as i have already poured over her earlier knitting content) i came across this. There is a great link to a pdf about half way down the page that has some great add on patterns. i love those mittens!
if i don't post before thursday, i hope you all have a great thanksgiving. i won't be making the SnB meeting this week because i will be baking this
recipe is from Williams-Sonoma.
Happy Thanksgiving all!!
