More books - knitting this time.

Needed some retail therapy today (it's a long story) so I went to the book shop and got this This wonderful book has designs for 900 jumpers, cardigans and most importantly (for my new years resolution) has instructions for knitting in the round. I will learn how to do this competantly this year so I can get away from my hatered of, and aversion to, sewing up knitting! Theoretically, I need never by a knitting book again, once I have the companion volume . Yeh, right! You believe me don't you. ROFLM.

Other than this shopping I have also been knititng :) A couple more inches on Mum's second sock so hopefully I get to turn the heel tomorrow and then finish by the day after. Need to get these posted by the 9th or 10th at the very latest (with expensive next day postage if it's the 10th - vbg)

I have plugged this forum a few other places but don't think I have mentioned it here before but I have learned more about knitting in the month I've been a member than in the preceeding 35KY (knitting years).

In case anyone is wondering I haven't stopped sewing :) I've just stopped sewing for the time being whilst I finish the present for Mum then back to the machine with the row by row and art quilt challenges :) This is supposed to be the year I get to grips with some of those UFO's!
