For about $5 I frustrated myself all weekend long in my hotel room and learned to knit. Best $5 I ever spent!

I love the Blossom Street novels, and plan on making Alix's Prayer Shawl one of these post beast days. I just finished Clara Parkes' The Yarn Whisperer. It's a series of essays on life, the universe, and everything as knitting relates to them.

That book seems to be very interesting! THANKS!!!

Aren't you happy you were bored? You picked up a great hobby!
