Oh wow, this is great. thanks for those titles. Funny, I’m a writer (or was, or might be) and I wrote my first novel, completed last fall but haven’t sold it annnnnnnnnd with my newly found obssession (well not that new) of knitting, I have been contemplating the next novel to include knitting.
More to the point, a story about a city woman and a country woman who has sheep and spins and all that and they exchange places.
Soooooo, I can’t wait to read these novels. THANKS!
And, I CANNOT believe a library charges for a card. That is so totally unAmerican, what the hell is that? A library is the most important place in the universe (well, aside from a couple of others I can think of) and the library is where I spent my entire childhood. That is so wrong. I mean, I could see maybe $5 for something but $100???
That is WRONG. :fingerwag:
Oh, I stumbled across this book at the library a couple days ago, thought it might be mambypamby or silly, but as it turns out, it was just what I needed this week and I’m really loving it.
The Knitting Sutra Craft As a Spiritual Practice
by Susan Gordon Lydon
Some really interesting facts too, like how Ralph Lauren tried to take credit for these Canadian Indians age old designs on his sweaters… and how these women in the Hebrides Islands always made their sweaters a little too small, then stretched them, to save on the amount of wool … they had to knit a sweater a WEEK to put food on the table for their families. Interesting huh?
ciao for now, Vic
