OK I'm sure lots of you don't like books (haha!) - or you already have them - but I found a deal at crafters choice - it's a website -- 4 books for $1 each - and you only have to buy I think 2 more books within the next two years - it's a deal where you can say "no thanks" to the selection online too -- which is cool -
I bought an extra book and I ended up spending $32.68 for 5 knitting books - on edging, socks, merino wool (from Morehouse farm which is beautiful), etc...
a good deal if you like getting books - it's true, however, that we can get lots of information and ideas straight from the internet, but I have already found a few patterns/ideas that are cool in just my 30 second scanning of these new arrivals!
Just in case you want to check it out :)
