I have been discovering the joys of the internet shopping. I rarely feel the lack of paypal too much of a detriment. (Is there a reason they need my SIN number..um..NO). My First stop was Amazon.ca. I picked up Knitting Nature. I love the complex math that is behind the patterns and somem of the patterns don't appreal to me now , but I am eyeing a bunch with an eye that says I'll probably have them grow on me. The patterns are clear and concise, the writting is intreaguing and thoughtful. One Skein wonders is a good book to have. Quick presents and misc. knitting projectshandy. This is the book that has the most patterns. The calender is ok, the best part was they have a page where you can submit your own patterns for next years. Squee!
