(1)Mason Dixon Knitting--Love it! I bought it for the Log Cabin Blanket pattern, but fell in love with everything in it!
(2)Aran Sweater Design--I'm still going through this one, but it's autographed and it looks like it's a wealth of design information(something I've really been wanting to try--aim high I say).
(3) Japanese Knitting Stitches--Joanne turned me on to this book--I think it's the perfect companion for the Crossed in Translation book because it actually shows you how the symbols/stitches used in Japanese Patterns.
(5) One Skein--I love this book there are quite a few things I would like to try.
(6) Knitting Rules--I have only skimmed it so far, but you can never go wrong with Harlot :)
My Easter Basket :)
DH was actually off today--unbelievable for a Saturday and I got to go out sans children for a change. First stop was the cross stitch shop and lucky me all cross stitch fabric was 20% off. So I got two quarter yard pieces of 25 count Lugana(I would have liked a bigger piece but that was all they had in the color/fabric/stitch count I wanted)--and ultra awesome shop that it is, they serged the pieces for me so no fraying :) I also got a cute cross stitch key chain with I'm contemplating turning into a stitch marker and a sheep needle work magnet(for you non stitchers you put the sheep on the outside of your piece and the magnet underneath it so that it can hold your needle when you have to put your stitching down). Then it was off to String where I got a 40" size 2 addi(to try Magic Loop) and two skeins of cotton(35% off no less) for a summer tank for Little Diva. Finally, the skein of Opal was a giftie from Cynthia--I promised to give it a good home :)
