When Yarn Attacks...
They're after me; they all want me to knit them!
(a.k.a.) I didn't want to work today, so I looked up new knitting books in between teaching classes.
The first - Clara Parke's yarn handbook. I had to buy this one today; mostly because it has great info about yarn. Although a couple of the projects are calling me - linen basket liners (and I have linen!) and a felted bag...I'm not interested in most. I had hoped that by not purchasing the other book I want (below) I could avoid the must. knit. now. delirium. (As I am desperately trying to make some FO's.)
So this book - Knitting New Scarves - is on my purchase ASAP list. These scarves are gorgeous, intriguing in construction, and just fun. There are three in there that I want to make right this minute.
And on top of all of it - I'm getting an urge to knit a sweater. Never mind all the sweater yarn I have on my bookcase waiting to become Starsky.
I want to make a Perfect Sweater. Can I handle the endless stockinette? I don't know. I do know that the cold rain we have here today probably has affected this desire. Now...what color of Cascade 220 do I want...
