Hmmm...this is my small knitting book collection. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket There are hundreds out there that I would like to purchase but quite honestly I seem to only knit one or two items from each one. Most of the time I like to read through for inspiration etc....actually my favourites are....

Folk Mittens

Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook (find this book exceptionally helpful with my own spinning for sock wool etc

Knitters hand book (even though been knitting for years, still find this helpful at


also in my collection

Victoria Lace Today (where would we be without this inspiration)

Knitting Lingerie Style

Best of Knitters Shawls and Scarves

Couture Knits (now there are quite a few that I am tempted by in this book

Anyway what else have I been up to...oh yes that a few balls of Sirdar (do you know what for the life of me cannot remember its name...sure some of you will recognize it and so have started this circular shrug pattern that I found on quite a way to go but I sit and do a bit whilst perusing knitting blogs etc...

Don't you just wish there were more hours to you your hobby....grrrrr! But DH has just taken dog out for walk and then we're off for a coffee somewhere. xx

Well have just come back...and guess what never got for the coffee....went for a drive in the country and lo and behold a roadside area of lovely blackberries...well strictly speaking through the farmers gate and around the corner in his field....loads of I was very careful not to annoy the ol' waspies after all they were there first. I tell you blackberrying takes me soooo back to my and my two younger brothers vying the the biggest and fattest...mind you sometimes more went into our mouths...used to tease my brothers that they were wearing lipstick....isn't it strange everything seems so much better when your young. Now these blackberries are of a ok size but not magnificent like they used to be or is that just my memory....anyway they will come in very useful for dinner next Friday...a good old fashioned roast chicken and apple and blackberry pie.
