Ok, went to B&N to look at the new Knitting mag, and ended up with three new books and the August KnitnStyle mag. Yikes!!! But I'm so HAPPY!

As long as you're happy!
But maybe you'd be safer in a library

I'm glad you're happy. Have a great 4th!

Lori Jean! I KNOW exactly how you feel! I've used the excuse that I just want to LOOK at the new book as a excuse to go to B&N and half of the time ended up with a new book and/or magazine! Of course, my financial situtation has changed so now when I get the urge, I think I'll go to my old stash or on-line for the freebies! I have more patterns than I could possibly knit in my life-time....of course I plan to live to 130 so maybe I can make a major dent!

I think cartoonist Lynn Johnston said it best: "Going into a bookstore and buying one book is like going into McDonald's and buying one french fry." Enjoy!!

Cute Susan, and oh so true.

I know I'm not alone, that's why I love the KR. I actually got the best book, and I know it'd been discussed in the forums before, but I didn't realize what a treasure it is. It's Stitch n beach Knitters Handbook. So much great, easy to understand info. I think I might send a copy to my daughter in New York.

I am happy for you and hope you enjoy them...gotta grab happiness when the opportunity arises, and like everyone always mentions, our hobby isn't hurting anyone (and it's helping the economy...yeah!). My main weaknesses are books, yarn, and stuffed animals, and as long as I try to be somewhat financially responsible , I figure I'm feeding my head, my creativity, and the weird little kid in me that still likes surrounding herself with fluffy friends. Have fun!
