It may not have delivered "brown paper packages tied up with string", but a cardboard box from Amazon was a close second!
Last year, I pre-ordered a book that I had heard about it on Ravelry (a wonderful site for those who knit and/or crochet). This brand new publication is an updated version of the original book of the same name.
There it is, all 700 pages of it. Gulp. If I can just learn how to properly sew up a sweater, I'll be pleased. As for casting on, I had no idea there were so many methods. Just seeing this volume sitting on the coffee table is inspiring me to pick up my knitting needles this weekend. After I clear away the card-making materials, that is!
I think I'm (finally) starting to get into a creative groove!
Reminder: A new "Sunlit Sunday" post (#7) will be up on Saturday evening at 7 pm EST. I hope you'll link-along! First-timers are warmly invited to join us!
