A quick post, in which I must share with you that I got "The Knitter's Book of Yarn" by Clara Parkes for Christmas. I have been scheming up ways to buy this book, despite the initial $40 price tag because I LOVE IT (incidentally, Amazon has it for under $20 now, so buy it! You will not be disappointed. It is a book of pure knitting genius)! In fact, many moons ago, I wrote about it in this here blog, lamenting my ethical obligation to take it back to the library.
I briefly considered buying it and writing it off as a business expense (I do, after all, run a recycled yarns business).
I thought I could buy it and chalk it up to my addiction to cashmere.
The idea of buying it and hiding the receipt from my husband briefly surfaced, but this is just too duplicitous for me.
So I asked my mom for it, and, on Christmas, I got it! I have been having trouble putting it down. I want to make everything in it, and I read the same chapters again and again. I seriously think that we knitters need a 12 Step Program. But since we don't have one, I shall love my book (and dream of the day when I can afford "The Knitter's Book of Wool."
