I'm Going to Need a Bigger Bookcase

We went to Borders today because the boys wanted to look at magazines, even though I said that I was tired and didn't feel like going. Since we were there though, I thought I would just check to see if they had Morehouse Farms Merino Knits. They did, which made me happy,even though I came home and discovered that Amazon has it on sale for ten dollars cheaper. I think it may be my new favorite knitting book. It has the most beautiful pictures in it. I like the knitting that they picture, but it's the pictures of the farm and the sheep that I love. I like pattern books, but I like reading about knitting even more than looking at patterns. The author explains how merino sheep had become practically non-existent in the U.S. by the 90s, but have gained popularity recently. They also have a website, Morehouse Anyway, I think it's official. I don't need any more knitting books. I used to collect cookbooks and that started to get out of hand too. So, I hereby declare a least for a while.

I've heard so many nice things about that book - seems to be very popular but I've never had a chance to look through it. Now you make me want to see it even more!!

Such a shame that your work on the school web site was so underappreciated by the super. I'm the kind of person that gets walked on all the time and usually says "wow, thanks - I'm so glad I had this opportunity" blah blah blah. And I usually mean it. Some day maybe I'll recognize it when I'm about to be taken advantage of. Or maybe not.

Your bunny slippers are the cutest ones I've ever seen - are they from a pattern or did you make them up?
