Whimsical Little Knits

S'funny. I just said to my friend M___ only the other day that I was going to have to rein in my internet purchases of yarn and knitting stuff....because my credit card was showing signs of strain and really needs a good rest. (Much like myself in fact.)

And I was perfectly sincere. I meant it.

I still do mean it.

But then this happened....

I just had to have this. Not that I actually NEED more books (pah!), but for the following reasons:

a) it looks beautiful
b) the patterns are delightful
c) I love Ysolda's work
d) it is reasonably priced#
e) I truely think that (quality) independent designers should be supported, or else we'll all end up living in a great big Ikea world
f) it will make a great gift for someone if I don't keep it
g) but you know I'm gonna keep it

S'lovely. So the credit card can go to the Rest Home a little later on.

Ah well. Sigh.

Have you been following Ysolda's American Adventure on her blog? I love seeing her looking at her work adapted to the American Aesthetic.

Great package of goodies and I wouldn't turn it away from my door if it came this way...

Thanks for the tip off. I saw a couple of 2nd-hand comments about her trip, but haven't sat down with her blog yet.

I'll do that later today....
