The budget is shot. I bought or rather ordered ( same thing) some pale grey Jagger Spun Zepher Wool-Silk lace weight ( oh drool) to knit a shawl for my friend Jacki. Then I finally found ONE copy of this book in all of London. It has been out of stock for months. Samurai Knitter got one and after reading her post I really want my copy. I am picking it up after work tonight along with the latest Simply Knitting..... I pass magazines onto Julia, Official Keeper of the Library. Corinne has been on a hat kick this winter well, I have been on a lace kick. I am finishing my third one right now, 768 stitches on a round. I made a booboo which meant I had to frog about 1700 stitches. It is very character building. I should be up for sainthood after that. I am also working on the Vernal Equinox I am on clue #4. I also signed up for sock roulette ( see Corinne's post below) I am using Arequipa sock yarn I have the toe done..lol I better get a move on this weekend. Pictures later.
