Someday, When I Have the Time...

There are many, many books I would like to read.

Especially about knitting- because I, so far, am absolutely loving it!

Here are some that look interesting...


This is one I've seen on more than one knitter's blog...


I have made one scarf so far. The most basic, simple scarf- it's quick and easy and so versatile, because you can create it in any color or color combination imaginable. It would be fun to learn how to make other cute scarves...



And, there are even knitting MYSTERIES out there to read!
Heehee, I just thought that was funny. :D



I've only seen a handful of this guy's cartoons (yes, a guy that knits!), but they are funny!



I looked through this one briefly online, and it looks like a great "beginner's" book. Lots of tips, tricks, and easy to understand how-to's.

Anyway, I'm just dreaming here. There's no way I'll have the time to even get through one of these in a short amount of time. But, I love books and I love reading, and it's fun to keep sort of a "to read" list.

What's on your reading list?

Ooh, I'd like to read all those books too! Although I'm not nearly as far into knitting as you. I still haven't learned how to cast off so I can't get any further on my bag even, and those are the only needles I have, so I haven't started anything else either. I'm itching to make a wool soaker (diaper cover) for Miles, like the one shown on the cover of the expectant knitter book. And a hat for Rich. Oh, the projects I'd do if only I had the time and knowledge... :-)

Maybe I can learn some more on Saturday if it doesn't snow too much. And maybe we can do lunch too? I need to get out of the house and do something! I'm going stir crazy around here :-)

Haha- I understand the need to get out! :D Yeah, lunch would be great! I had her show me yesterday how to "bind off" so I could stop knitting my little daycare girl's scarf! It's not too hard. She went over a bunch of other stuff with me too- for the bag- but I don't think any of it stuck with me. Also, I had my little daycare guy with me (wasn't sure how that was going to go), and we found out she has a three drawer thing of toys! He can't wait to go back, haha! :)

Do you know a great website (w/ pics) that would give me a quick refresher course on knitting? It's been probably 2 years since I've last knitted because last winter was all about wedding planning... and I want to get into it again...

I just do the basic knit and purl stitches with scarves... but its still relaxing for me! :)

Well, I know YouTube has some good videos on the basics- I also found a 3 dvd set on Amazon that I'm going to get at some point this winter that teaches you. I'll post about it when I find it again.

Just wanted to let you know that I found a great website that refreshed my memory... looks like it has some more advanced techniques also.
