Any Book Worms?
Has anyone read or perused this book? A History of Hand Knitting sounds interesting and I would like to learn more about the evolution of knitting. The price, even discounted, is somewhat high (reg. $39.95; $27.95 @ and I would like to know if it is worthwhile. So far, it is not at my newsstand or LYS for me to browse through the pages. I also need to pick up the newest Harry Potter book; I want to scout for the best price.

The boys recently found a new place to play. Does anyone know what this item is? The first correct answer wins a surprise from my stash! Bowie is hiding out in said item by trying to blend in with the woodwork.

Today’s Knitting News
I only have 2 inches to go on the back of Milano and would be done if I had not begun Tuscany last night. You can see the armhole shaping that will have trim to match the hem (moss stitch). Tuscany is made in one piece from sleeve to body to sleeve. Knit on #8 US, I see it will be a quick knit as long as my first short row experience goes smoothly.
