...and Retail Therapy involving knitting is TWICE as nice!
I know I'm quite behind in my book collection. I kept telling myself to get some planned projects done from my One Skein Wonders book to justify needing more, but sometimes you just need more motivation and a REALLY hard week on the personal front to induce such purchases. At times I couldn't even focus on knitting (yep, it's that bad), so instead I started planning and purchasing these. (Thankfully I've snuck in a few repeats of my Wisp over the past week and reaped some therapy, but I really need more.)
I'm watching my mailbox for these:
Last-Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson for the SO many great projects!
Mason Dixon Knitting by the lovely ladies Ann and Kay who were one of my first daily blog reads.
Weekend Knitting by Melanie Falick for many great projects also!
To all of the Dish Rag Tagger's: Happy July 31st, let the race begin! (Anyone from Running Ragged please check the forum, I just posted.)
Anyone else starting to get excited about the new contest with Knitters Virtual Vacation? I'm glad that they are running such fun contests while we wait for the swap!
(Hey to FiberWho if you're reading this!)
YAY for Yarn Harlot in two days! I look forward to meeting a bunch of new friends.
(A girl has got to keep herself looking forward to something in a tough time like this, and it's certainly all things knitting these days!)
