Love Your Library Challenge
I loved the idea of this challenge since first reading about it on Snapdragon Crafts. So I was very happy to see that it now has a link-up so I can easily check out what others are up to.
I have a LOT of knitting patterns - books, magazines, leaflets and a lot more than I thought on the computer (when did I purchase so much from Ravelry?!) Like my stash, I could probably knit for the rest of my life, and longer, with the patterns I have.
And as part of the Year of No Superfluous Spending, I will not be purchasing any new patterns. So this will be a great reminder to knit with what I already have.
These are my books. Admittedly, they are not all knitting books (also quilting and sewing), but a large percentage of them are.
And these boxes stashed in the hall cupboard are my knitting magazines. yes, two boxes full!
I love vintage patterns, especially baby ones. So at the moment I am knitting from this booklet, which I bought from eBay a few years ago. I think the lady was selling all her mum's knitting stuff. So I bought some lovely vintage pattern books from her.
This is the pattern I am knitting, This Lacy Raglan using Drops Alpaca.
