Well, maybe not NEED, but want in a big way.
Generally speaking I am so happy to just look at knitting books. The girls and I head to Barnes and Noble reading time, and while they clap along to Truck Tuesday, or whatever the theme is I can flip through the latest books. Then go home without having spent a dime
Well, today they had a whole pile of these. It really is great. Some of the books recently have been either too basic, or too wacky. This is a good in between. Difficult enough to be fun. It has two great tree skirt patterns, both of which are really tempting. Lots of good gift ideas. Stuff with some real substance, like thigh-high stockings with great detail along the back seam. Unlike a lot of knitting books it shows several pictures of the projects so you have a good idea of what they should look like.
Really, I am not doing it justice…go have a look!
