BALLS! BULLOCKS!............................

I checked out the book "Knitting with Balls" and it's better than I expected, although perhaps a little too heavy on the accessories. (What happens when a knitted wallet gets wet? Or a knitted laptop cover?) Still, it is clearly written and there is a sweater pattern or two that I think are quite good. More power to the author. He beat me to the punch. Now mind you, I didn't buy it... but it does seem to be selling well. Portland is very hot in the knitting department right now. Powell's book store has an entire aisle of books on knitting and patterns. Who'd have thunk it?

I bought this book a couple of weeks ago. I think it's great! I'm always kind of at a loss for ideas for projects for myself...i'm somewhat dim like that ;-) Have just started the tribal'esque sweater..and of course...messed up my wrist. so now I have to wait to continue working on it! *BULLOCKS!!*

PS = I too live in PDX. Long live NW Knittin Dudes!! :D

I am a stonemason and horticultural designer in real life. That picture was taken when I was creating a stone patio mere weeks before Christmas in 2004. If you have an e-mail address, I can send you and image of the completed project (with immature plantings).

Look up www.Meisterhaus.com

Look up www.Meisterhaus.com and find the logo: It's one I did about 6 years ago, and it has a definate Edward Goreyeque feel, with basenji topiaries.
