The following blog silence is brought to you by…

10 Secrets of the LaidBack Knitters: A Guide to Holistic Knitting, Yarn, and Life , which finally arrived.

It’s one of those eye-catching books. You know, with pictures. Of yarn. And yarn- wool-bearing critters. And things you can make with the yarn that the yarn- wool-bearing critters produce.

But sadly, so far, there are only about nine things I want to actually make.

Wait. Ten.

But that’s about it.

Oh. Except also that one.

Tell you what. I’ll get back to you with the final count of things from this book that I’ll soon be whining about not having enough time to even think about starting, ‘kay?

(All kidding aside, this is a visually stunning book. I could sit here and stare at the pictures of yarn all day long. And perhaps tellingly, I see nothing weird about that.)

You're a bad influence, do you know that? I've lost count of how many books, patterns, etc. I've purchased because you (or Ms. Pearl-McPhee, or the lovely Mason-Dixon ladies) have raved about them. How am I ever going to put my kids through college? :-)

Decloaking to say thanks for the recommendation. I was woefully short on knitting books on my Wish List. ;)

Of course there's nothing wrong with that! (There's a reason why it's good for knitters to have knitting friends: we get it, too.) Sounds like a book I need to see.
