Free Knitting Books

While at a conference last month, I managed to win a $100 Barnes & Noble gift certificate at a vendor drawing. Woo-hoo! After confirming with the donor that it was indeed appropriate for me to spend this money on myself and not on my library (yes, I asked -- can you believe it?), I decided right away to get some knitting books. It was hard balancing "bang for my buck," "things I need" and "things that are just kind of interesting." Hope I got a good balance.

Despite our dog Silas' best efforts, the UPS man brought these today:

I need to get reading...


  1. You were so lucky - that was the best thing they gave away! Three of those books are on my wishlist. I guess I might as well put the fourth (The History of Handknitting) on there, too!

  2. These are all on one bookshelf, right? We have to pencil in time for "knitting book review" next month.

  3. Yes, Janelle, they are all on one shelf -- as of today. They were scattered. I need more time too look at them. I did manage to thumb through the Zimmerman book. She cracks me up!
