…. after nearly a year of unemployment and being very careful. Not too much, because I already have books and yarn aplenty, but just a few very lovely things that I really couldn’t resist.
I very nearly squealed because the edition with the Leo Walmsley article was there.

And that’s it for book shopping …. for now at least ….
And so to knitting.
I was charmed by Ella Austin’s Bunny Mitts in this month’s copy of Knit Now
And when I saw that the yarn came from the wonderful Skein Queen and that she had mitten kits in stock I really couldn’t resist.
