Bought new books

I went to the used bookstore by my office today and found two books that I had to have.

  1. Afghans; Traditional and Modern by Bonita Bray copyright 1977

  2. Crochet Novelties from Turn-of-the-Century Sources edited by Jules and Kaethe Kliot

Also this weekend I found;

A Handbook of Dyes From Natural Materials by Anne Bliss copyright 1981

This right here demonstrates my problem. I learn to knit, I buy a butt load of knitting books. I am learning to crochet, I am starting to buy a butt load of crochet books.

Now that I know both, I will have to buy books that include both knitting and crocheting. I am also buying books on dying yarn. Soon I will want to spin, and will buy books on spinning.

I see where this is going. Pretty soon, I will have sheep grazing on my patio, and will want to buy an alpaca or two. I will have to buy books on “What to feed your alpaca” or “Sheep and their applications; other than their wool”. Arrrrgh. I’m a book and fiber craftaholic. I need help!!!

So what did you say the problem is?

And the problem is?

I sure can’t help you. I love buying my knitting and quilting books too!!! I LOVE the books.:woot:

When my hands start hurting from knitting… the next best thing is to read about knitting…

I wish I could afford to buy knitting books…I have to stick to checking them out from the library and renewing them over and over again.

I know what you mean. I mentioned the possibility of maybe raising sheep when we retire, and DH looked at me like I had 3 heads. I thought it sounded cool!!

Glad I’m not the only one that gets that look…

I hear ya! Between the Doctor Who Scarf…Skully Sweater…Skull and Crossbones Dishcloths…ouch!:knitting:

Rest of the time I’m reading knitting books! :thumbsup:

When I take my breaks at work, lately…well for the past few years, I’ve found myself taking patterns outside and reading them to relax.:aww:

that second book sounds awesome- what a find!!! (I love pattern books- to me they are like reading novels…)
