My mum somehow mentioned to a woman in her choir that I knit, and she was very excited. Every so often my mum will come and and say that she was asking for me, do I still like the knitting, etc. Last week she came home saying that the woman had come to her saying that she had some knitting books she hadn't any use for, and she didn't want me to feel obliged, but if I'd like them I was welcome to them.
So now I have these!
They have some cute speedy patterns, and one jumper I want to make. (The 'casual jumper' on the cover of the one on the right.) Dilemma: It's a nice jumper, and the patterns recommends a brand of (machine-washable) yarn that I want to use in a project. ~16 balls for my size though, and about seven euro a ball. First world problems!
