birthdays and other such things
the whole set of Knit Picks Options in Harmony Wood, they are beautiful and amazing and I love them. Thanks Mom!
A Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara G. Walker, one of a series on which, like, every other knitting pattern book is based. Or so someone told me once.
Shawls and Scarves: The Best of Knitter's Magazine, a book with some really beautiful patterns. Thanks Dad!
I am currently knitting a (sadly) acrylic bright green cabled... rectangle. I'm knitting it because I really wanted to try out the new needles. So much fun! I think it's going to be a hand towel or something. It depends on how long it is when I run out of yarn. Thankfully, I don't have too much of this stuff.
