Loop de poop
I've been toying with the idea of learning how to knit/crochet for weeks now. Finally, on my lunch break today, I decided to pay a little visit to the public library in hopes of finding some how-to books. I immediately sprinted to the new release section and found nothing for the novice person, such as myself. So I wound my way to the backroom shelves of neglected books.
My problem with libraries is that I don't discriminate when choosing the books I take home. An arm full is common and sometimes a tote is necessary. I take the books home, they sit, they expire, and I end up paying $15 every time I want to check out more books.
Needless to say, I brought home the "Family Circle Easy Sweaters" book for some inspiration, as well as "Knitted Toys - 21 Easy-to-knit patterns for irresistible soft toys." The first book is a gem. Let's take a little peek, shall we?
Hmm....a fine number, especially with the uberhip sunglasses. I'll take it into consideration.
Ohh..the colors. I know Bobby would really appreciate it if I knitted him a sweater. Maybe one with hearts or teddy bears.
Now here's an idea. Our first year anniversary is coming up next weekend. Doesn't give me much time to learn how to knit and actually produce something bigger than a coaster, but perhaps I'll give it a shot. What do you guys think?
