Finally, the weekend before last, Cindy (Cindy’s Love of Books), Linda (Better with Books), Tina (Bookshipper) and I met for the last time before we go to BEA together next month. (Donna [BookBound] unfortunately couldn’t make it.) I’ve finally gotten my passport and bought my train tickets, so this is really happening!
Tina passed on one book to me: Sweater Quest: My Year of Knitting Dangerously by Adrienne Martini.
All of us (except Tina) brought in our knitting projects. I just finished mine the night before last (it’s a cotton washcloth knit mostly in seed stitch), and I’m trying not to mind too much that one side is obviously a lot looser than the other!
