Because of what is inside of this:
I will be taking knitting lessons at my LYS in the near future. Thanks for the birthday present, Dad!!! :)
In the interest of full disclosure, I bought the book that my LYS recommended because I felt that, if I didn't, I would chicken out of using the presentinsidetheenvelope on something like.....yarn. And since we know that I really don't need any more yarn....
*cough*bought this last weekend*cough*
I figured that, if I bought the book, I would be more apt to actually TAKE the knitting lessons.
Honestly, the only reason that I want these knitting lessons is so that I can finally learn how to knit socks. I am desperate to learn the fine art of sock knitting because, truly, I covet (in a Biblically non-sinful way) pairs of hand-knit socks. I am jealous (again....in a non-sinful way) of those who are talented enough to wield a mean pair of knitting needles and turn out a luscious pair of hand-knit socks.
And, after all, I could eventually learn how to knit a sweet little sweater for a sweet little puppy...
ps. more on the other two books in other post.
