This is Juli*, of my 100 list #72-74 fame. She learned to knit over Thanksgiving! I can't tell you how cool this is. My friends Emily (the drunk license checker) and Allie (Gus's Mom) have also learned to knit. We also have an expert knitter in the crowd, Ms Marne. This means one thing and one thing only - our Annual Beaver Reunions (see #32-38 on the 100 List) will be knit-tastic!
I haven't been knitting. I'm just about at the end of the Kite Runner (link on the sidebar.) I'm a crazy person at the end of books. It's hard for me to do anything but read. This one left me feeling blech in the beginning. It's turning out to be a fabulous story. Has anyone read it yet?
So, I need some advice here. I'm just about done with my time as a bookseller at my local independent bookstore. I love working there but the time commitment is driving me bonkers. I'd like to take advantage of the last days of my discount and get a bunch of knitting books. Recognizing that I'm po' and must get the most bang for my buck are there any essentials out there I should invest in?
*Juli just moved to Colorado, the Boulder/Denver area. Are there any friendly knitters out that way? She's really cool, I swear.
