Help please!
I just saw a book at Joanns and almost bought it but didn't.. Now I wish I had. It's called "Fair Isle Knitting Made Simple". I tried to do a search online for it but nothing comes up. :crying: Does anyone have this book and do I have the title exactly right?? Who is the author?? Thanks so much. The book looked WAY beyond my abilities but I think I would have enjoyed looking at it and reading it anyway. :D Thanks.

I bought this book for $5 last week at Hobby Lobby in the sale bin.

I have another pamphlet from Philosophers Wool, on socks, I think its called Sock Hop. Anyway my kids love for me to read the intros to them because he tells of how they got into sheep ranching. Real interesting.

There is a time to be born and a time to die. A time to laugh and a time to cry, but there never seems to be enough time to knit.-Anon. (or to visit KH!)

Come visit my blog.
