More Books


Look at the goodies I found at Spotlight today. I decided to get out of the house for a while and go and look at some crafty things, not that I really need anything, but these were on sale. They are packets of ribbons, and you can get a lot of different colors. I chose red and pinks today, and the little packets of buttons were reduced too. They were in the scrapbooking part, but I am sure I can use them for other things. The buttons are light mauve and pink with white polka dots on them, and they are different sizes too, so maybe I can use them on baby knits.

When I arrived home I found these goodies in the letterbox. I have not looked through the Crafter's Companion yet, but I am going to as soon as I finish this post. I ordered this book via Prints Charming, which I found through Six and A Half Stitches. If you ordered before the 25th of February, they sent you a fat quarter as well. Look at mine, polka dots, one of my favourites too. I cant wait to sit down and read through it all, and I have seen it on a few other blogs and they all raved about how good it was, so I am in for a nice afternoon of reading about all the crafty people in there.



The Jaegar 28 book arrived too (and at least this time it was not folded in half and creased). There is a jacket in here called the Jethro Jacket, and I am dying to make it. I saw it on the Knitsmiths blog, via the Blue Blog which is listed on my sidebar, and the jacket was just gorgeous. I ordered my copy from Sunspun who have some really great books, fabrics and yarns too. It is easier for me to order it online than to drive there as trying to go down Bridge Road- Richmond is a nightmare with all the traffic, so if I can avoid it I will, and I suppose it does save me money too by not being tempted to buy anything else in the store too. Well I must go and catch up on some things that need doing, and make sure Isabelle is ready for the birthday party she is going to tomorrow at the swimming pool around the corner from us, and then we have Paul's birthday on Sunday, so I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Now, that must have been a great day indeed - a day just can't go wrong when it brings such a lot of goodies with it, can it? I really love the buttons you bought, they'd be so pretty with baby items! And that Jaeger book seems very interesting indeed - I'm looking forward to seeing you casting on for the Jethro Jacket!

So many wonderful goodies! Not that I want to be totally materialistic, but somethings THINGS can bring such pleasure. Enjoy all the crafty fun!

Can I come live with you? You have so many gorgeous looking pattern books I could just read them (and knit from them) forever sitting quietly in a corner...

Congratulations! I drew your name this morning so you get the sock yarn. Send me your address (MitoRocks at juno dot com) and I should be able to get it in the mail early next week.

Best thing I find always when I go out "just to look around"!

I've been wanting to make Jethro for a while, but somehow, with all that cabling in DK yarn, it gets pushed to the back of the to-do list. Good thing my husband doesn't mind. :-)

you've acquired so many lovely books ... makes me want to take a few days off of work and curl up with my book collection and cast on a few projects. Jethro is a lovely sweater
