Utah Haul 1
The Drops Pattern books were an awesome deal at $1 each--whoohoo--gotta love that! The sock book actually came in the mail, but it did come while we were gone so it's sort of Utah haul stuff.
Utah Haul 2
Yes, you're seeing that correctly--I got the Torino and Colorado Springs Dale patterns--I'd been on a quest for those. The Knitting Pure & Simple patterns(yellow) look great finished up--my friend, Karyn, had one made up with Cascade 220 quattro and it turned out fabulous :)
Happy knitting and stitching,
Today's "Stitching Blogger's Question" was suggested by Carol
(http://carolsxsblog.blogspot.com/) and is:
What is the most challenging specialty stitch you have ever stitched?
I'm not sure really. I don't choose many pieces that have specialty stitches. I guess some of the Shepherd's Bush needlerolls contain the toughest specialty stitches I have ever tried.
Booking Through Thursday
- Are abridged books a good thing or just plain awful? Just plain awful.
- How about books that are edited to modernize them? I was going to say no but then I thought of the translations from Old or Middle English I used to read--I don't think they should be edited but some translation may be helpful.
- Is dated language part of the charm of a book or an irritation? To me it's part of the charm but I know plenty of people who think otherwise.
- Have you ever read an abridged or edited version of a book? No, because I'd always wonder what I'd be missing. The only exceptions I can think of are the translations I mentioned above.
