Book Bargain

So now the weather is cooler, I am going down with yet another throat infection. Which I realise doesn’t make much sense to anyone, as I had the last two earlier this year when I wasn’t blogging and so you’re all thinking “another one?”, but the first one ended up with me in hospital which was most (not) joyous. So I am feeling rough, not knitting, but drinking enough water to keep a camel going for several weeks.

But I do want to share a book bargain which I’m afraid is pretty UK-centric. If you have a branch of The Works near to you, then go with all possible speed to look at their craft section. I didn’t even know there was one as it was tucked at the back of the shop and I normally barely get past the front due to the mountain of children’s books and small toddler combination. However, I was amazed at the selection of craft books they have, at considerably less than the cover price. Last week I picked up a copy of Knitting Classic Style:

for a ridiculously low £3.99. There are also heaps of them on their website. I am probably going to discover I am the last person on the planet to know about their book bargains, but just in case I’m not, that’s my tip for this week. :-D

    Oh dear, I hope you feel better very soon xx
    But, in the meantime, reading is good research, isn’t it?
    Take care xx

    It almost sounds like tonsillitis, but I know your doctor would have figured that one out the first time. Hope you’re better soon and I’m sure reading your new book will help in the healing process.

    I always get sick when there are sudden changes in the barometric pressure, which means this year has been a delight since it took a very long time to get warm and then we slammed into hotter-than-usual summer temperatures.

    I hope you’re feeling better by now. :(

    I found the book used for $5.50! You have a wonderful eye. Those are great patterns.

    It is morally wrong to put toys at the entrance to a store. Wrong. On so many levels!
