I ordered 4 Barbara Walker stitch dictionaries from the Knitpicks book sale. I have always wanted these Barbara Walker books. They were $18 USD each (about $28 CAD). Despite the fact that our dollar is so weak right now compared to the US dollar, they were still a bargain as I usually see these books for $50 (paperpack) to $90 (hardcover) in Canadian book stores. Also, I cannot complain about paying $7 to ship 4 heavy books.
They are so inspiring and I love to read the text at the beginning of the books. If you are on Periscope, I will be doing a show and tell of these books later today (I am Knitalot924 on Periscope).
I also have Barbara Walker's Mosaic Knitting book, so I will show and tell that during the Periscope as well.
I received a beautiful project bag from my Instagram friend, Lindsay. This was part of the #GetYourYarnWishesGranted movement on Instagram over the holidays. I sent Lindsay some lovely Felici since they cannot get it in her country and she has always wanted to try it. I love Doctor Who and this bag currently houses a scarf that I am working on.
Here is what it looks like on the inside:
If you have any favourite knitting books or stitch dictionaries, I would love to hear about them. I am always interested in good knitting books.
