Christmas Bounty 2 of 2

A veritable network of people looking for knitting and fiber-related items keep my crafting area full to the brim!

Gifts - Part 2

In addition to the 35 knitting booklets, I got from my sister-in-law, Michelle, there were also 23 knitting books.  Again, most of them focused on men's knitting designs or designed/written by men.

I have many of the books already, so a lot of them will go with me to the Men's Knitting Retreat to sell on the tag sale table and make money for the scholarship fund.  One of the books, A History of Hand Knitting by Richard Rutt I have always wanted to own and I've started reading it already.

Shocking to see the price for used copies of this book go for on Amazon...yikes!

In addition, Michelle's friend Holly also sent up a beautiful gift.

These antique weaving items will be perfect for decorating my craft show table, no?

Current Knitting

The third panel of the Easton Mountain logo blanket is almost complete.

It's been a busy time (holidays and Men's Knitting Retreat stuff), so knitting time has been a bit scarce.  But I've also got a new project on the needles and a teaser for next blog entry!

Upcoming Blog Contest with beautiful yarn prizes!
