I think, some books are not meant to be squeezed into a bookshelf, after we read them, and this is one of them. What I would like to do, and this is meant for people, who have and maintain a blog, is to pick randomly one person from the comments to send this book too, for reading and passing it on, in the same manner. I wonder how far and to what countries this book will go? If you are interested to play this little game, please leave a comment (even if you don't want to play, you can leave a comment ;o) ) We will need to link from where to book has come, and where it will go, so we all can follow it around.
I thought I'll insert a sheet of paper, with name and blog address on it, so people who'll get the book, can add their name and blog address. I'm also knitting Li's scarf for charity, the pattern is in this book, or you can get it from her, by asking for it in a comment.
It's not obligatory to knit something from the book (there are nine patterns in there), but if you want to, it would be nice. I'm knitting this scarf with Cherry Tree Hill Super Glitz. It's merino wool, with a strand of glitter, DK weight, and I'm using 4mm needles. I've cast on 42 stitches, because the yarn is thinner as recommended in the pattern. It will need blocking to open up the ribbing a bit, it's reversible, a fun stitch pattern. You can't really see it from the short piece on the picture, but the pink is doing a zig-zag in an orderly fashion, not just boring pooling, which I really hate. Still it's slow going. I think the herringbone ribbing draws it together, and I think I could have even used 4.5mm, but I'm NOT frogging it for that. Who will this scarf be knit for? I don't know yet. I hope I'll find someone in need of a warm scarf. It sure is cold enough right now around here. I hope I'll be done with it, at the end of the week.
So, I think this was a long enough post for getting back into the groove. I'll be back with FO's pictures. It's good to be back, and I hope I'll hear from you. By the way, if you have suggestions on how to make the "book forwarding" more interesting, or easier to follow, lets hear it too! :o)
