Knitting books

Found some great knitting books by Nicky Epstein at the Singapore Library. I think these are not new books but they are really a great reference for starter knitter like me! The book compiles lovely patterns/stitches with all their instructions. Liked it so much that I made an order for it with Amazon.

The titles were "Knitting On the Edge" and
and "Knitting Over the Edge".

From Posie

I am so excited ! I just received the package from Posie "Rosy Little Things" - the Country Girl Clothespin Doll Kit ! Lovely stuff containing the doll pins, pin stands, head beads, assorted cloth materials, acrylic paints varnish set among other stuff including instructional notes to help me hand make 5 cute little dolls. The overseas package costs me US$38 but I cant resist it as the dolls look so adorable ! Got to get it moving after I finish my blue socks ...
