My name is Rose Red and I'm addicted...

My name is Rose Red and I'm addicted to buying knitting books.

It started innocently enough, with this (purchased to provide more sock pattern options for my brother's odd socks - anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it):
When the woman at the checkout asked me if I wanted to be on the store mailing list and mentioned the magic words "discounts and special offers", I was putty in her hands and was soon handing over my email address. How harmful could it be, I reasoned to myself.

Pretty soon, this followed (using my 20% off welcome voucher):
And then this (using a 20% off any non-fiction voucher):
I don't even have kids of my own...lucky I have friends with kids, oh, and feet! Where will it end..... ???

They look gorgeous! Can you please bring them to the next Chicks with Sticks?

I have the Sensational Socks one, and I love it. Another Amazon box arrived here this week with Barbara Walker Treasury 2, The Knitting Answer book, The Ultimate Sourcebook of Knitting and Crochet Stitches and the Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns. Pretty soon, there won't be a stitch pattern that I don't have somewhere!

I have both of the kid's books, arent they great. I have made 2 of the ribbon edged cardis now, for girls, and they are so cute arent they. I am addicted to knitting books as well, a bad habit but better than some other things people have habits of.

Oh, how great! I'm sure you're going to find a lot of inspiration in these books! I'm about to get the Sensational Socks one and mind you, I can't wait to have a look through it (and try out the patterns of course!) Happy Knitting!
