Obsessive Wild Hare Wednesday...

Just look at this photograph! Go ahead. Look carefully.
Enlarge it, if you need to, but check out the titles.
They're all knitting and crochet books.

I learned to knit when I was a kid, but like many others, put it away until later in life. In my case, I began knitting, in earnest, about eight years ago. When I did, I purchased my first book, Stitch 'n Bitch by Debbie Stoller. It's a fabulous book with great pictures to help any knitter learn or improve their techniques. It could have been enough. It should have been enough. Well, perhaps just a few patterns to make cool things for my family and friends were in order.

Instead, the Knitting Pattern Bug...a 'wild hare' of sorts...bit me. If you think these are all the books and patterns I own. Au contrair, Wild Hare. I'm more than embarrassed. I'm ashamed at my obsession. If you are looking for a particular title, let me know. I just might have it...and would give you a fair price.

Really. There's nothing to see here, people. Move along.
Although Shell has completed her "Wild Hare" Wednesdays over at Tales From The Raspberry Rabbits, I'm making up for last week when I missed the final post.

Oh my ...... Looks like my quilting books....... Or my hobby books.. I have a box of books in the attic that belonged to my mom.. They are Workbasket books.. They start around 1945 and go to around 1984..... There are hundreds of them.. I have no idea what to do with them and cannot bear to throw them away....

Your collection is impressive...

Oh, I'm salivating looking at all those lovely books! They are my weakness. At the moment, I can't think of one in particular that I'm looking for, but if I think of something, I'll let you know. Have a wonderful day! Twyla

My Oh My I don't feel so bad about the things that I collect. You really have a lot of books. I was looking at some real old ones the other evening while I was going through a box of old embroidery patterns and etc.
