The postman knocks once...

and look at the goodies I got!


Yes, that is a (gasp) knitting book that you see there.  Don't try to adjust your screen.  Your eyes aren't playing tricks on you.

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 ( 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.


  1. YOU GO BFF!!!!! :o)

  2. I wish you luck with the knitting. It will be great if you learn and then may be you can show me. Also, Miss Diamond could use another shrug ;) Look forward to seeing you soon.
