Look What I Scored
As my loyal readers know, I adore our local library and feel so fortunate to be in a community with such an amazing resource.
Anyway, they have a book sale 3-4 times a year and I tend to get there on the 2nd day and find books for the kids, me and I always check the knitting section. A while back I scored a Christmas Stocking book which had some good ornament patterns.
Miss America and I were there when the sale started on Friday afternoon and while she rushed to the young adult books I rushed to the knitting section...look what I scored! Debbie Bliss Baby Knits for $1 (originally $25) and EZ's Knitting without Tears in hardback for only 50 cents!
The shelves weren't very organized and I had to rummage to find these. On my way out I noticed a woman had a mitten shaped knitting book and I waited to see if she kept it or not - almost hovering ready to grab it (scary isn't it). She kept it and I realized that mittens aren't my favorite knit and I can find plenty online (like how I justify that one?).
Thank you dear library!
