I went to the used bookstore by my office today and found two books that I had to have.

1) Afghans; Traditional and Modern (http://www.antiqbook.com/boox/comf/10737.shtml) by Bonita Bray copyright 1977

2) Crochet Novelties from Turn-of-the-Century Sources (http://beadwrangler.com/book-crochet5.htm) edited by Jules and Kaethe Kliot

Also this weekend I found;

A Handbook of Dyes From Natural Materials (http://www.akrosbooks.com/si/000668.html) by Anne Bliss copyright 1981

This right here demonstrates my problem. I learn to knit, I buy a butt load of knitting books. I am learning to crochet, I am starting to buy a butt load of crochet books.

Now that I know both, I will have to buy books that include both knitting and crocheting. I am also buying books on dying yarn. Soon I will want to spin, and will buy books on spinning.

I see where this is going. Pretty soon, I will have sheep grazing on my patio, and will want to buy an alpaca or two. I will have to buy books on "What to feed your alpaca" or "Sheep and their applications; other than their wool". Arrrrgh. I'm a book and fiber craftaholic. I need help!!!

I wish I could afford to buy knitting books....I have to stick to checking them out from the library and renewing them over and over again.

I know what you mean. I mentioned the possibility of maybe raising sheep when we retire, and DH looked at me like I had 3 heads. I thought it sounded cool!!

Glad I'm not the only one that gets that look...

When I take my breaks at work, lately....well for the past few years, I've found myself taking patterns outside and reading them to relax.:aww:
