I've already made out my list. :D I have 5 must haves. eep.

Anyone have any opinion on A Dyer's Garden? I already have and am currently reading A Weaver's Garden - does anyone know if Dyer's is significantly different? I'm really liking the info so far in Weaver's.

How about Wrap Style? I'm torn about that one. I'm not much of a scarf person and yet I loved Scarf Style. I'm wondering if Wrap Style would be the same for me. I'm not a cape person. Would I be converted? I like the looks of most of the ones I can see at Knitpicks.

Thanks, Ingrid, for helping me blow my budget! Guess I won't be getting any yarn from the Knitpicks sale. LOL I ordered Hip to Knit, Homespun Handknit and Yarns to Dye For. They were sold out of Socks, which I really wanted. Oh well, great prices anyway! Too bad I didn't have any knitters in my family--they would make awesome gifts. Oh, and was the connection ever slow!! Took me almost an hour to complete and I already knew what books I wanted, so you have to be patient.

What did everyone else order?

Happy to be of service!

I'm glad I looked at their list ahead of time. I think I have all the books I could possibly need. I did try to get in, just to see, but it was taking so long. I just don't have the patience today--I'll free up a little 'space' for someone else.

Yes, thanks for posting it. I'm on their list, but I never got a notice about the sale - weird. I even bought books last time.

I got Domino Knitting, In Sheeps Clothing, Knitting on the Road, and Knitting Vintage Socks.

I feel very satiated now. All four have been on my watch list for some time.

It is slow going, but I think it only took me 20 minutes starting at 10:10.

I'm such a dork!
I'm going through the books and thinking, "Dang, they have a lot of books by this Hurt person...I've never even heard of them."

Duh.

Seriously.

I completely forgot about the book sale, that is until I came on here! Boy was that a big mistake. I ended up ordering: Felted Knits, Hand Knits for the Home, Hip to Knit, Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook, Dog in Knits and Knitter's Companion. It's not like I really needed these books, but it will make my new knitting corner look pretty.
