Books for the modern lady:
|My mom doesn't really knit (did many of the "bra-burning" women of the 60s and 70s knit? I would love to see the numbers on that) So I guess anything I knit is different than my mama's knitting.|
Books for the men:
|I was prepared to be non-plussed by this book. And I was (and still take major issue with their definition of "beginner." I've been knitting a while and I found some of their ideas a little challenging), until The Boy expressed interest in a Aran sweater pattern in it. I was so blown away by the fact that he knew what an Aran sweater was that I didn't even complain about the fact that he wanted ME to make it rather than learning how to do it himself. P.S. That's not going to happen.|
Books for Domiknitrixes????
|I have zero to say about this one.|
And if taking pictures of knitting books at a public library didn't demonstrate my high committment to nerdiness, I then preceeded to read a Stitchionary (a dictionary of different stitches...yup...) in public.
|Pizza, lemonade, public place, Vogue Stitchionary Volume I.|
I let everyone assume I was a design major and that this was an assignment for class...it was either that or the reality that I just read a stitch dictionary from front to back. Sigh...
