Library Knitting books.

I've had a couple of books out lately, although I find my fiction books much more compelling. Knitting Lessons is really about the process, how people have been caught up with knitting, what they learn about themselves and knitting. Mother of Purl is another interesting book, I liked the format of the book, there are a few patterns for simple tops that I am quite intriqued with and am considering knitting them up.

I have been working on a doll tonight, I am redoing the head, arms and legs of a doll that I had made for a challenge last Christmas. There is an exhibit in a couple of weeks, so I am happy with her new head, I needlefelted her hair and added angelina fibers for a bit of sparkle. The legs took a couple of hours and the arms so far about 3 hours, now it is time to stuff them. The hands aren't perfect yet but her old hands were ugly and I have more hope for this pair.

My hold on an Alice Starmore book came through at the library and I forgot to go get it. Maybe this is a sign that I need to tackle some other things before I hit the AS.

I think I might check out 'Knitting Lessons'.
