I just finished reading Knitting Rules!: The Yarn Harlot's Bag of Knitting Tricks and I loved it! Although it was a quick read, I am only left wishing there was more because it was such an enjoyable read. The writing is funny and confidence inspiring. Knitting that I have avoided or not yet attempted (like socks, circular shawls, and sweaters), I now feel inspired - in the middle of summer on a day with a high over 90° - to reconsider. After reading the description of knitting socks, well, that doesn't sound so hard. And the circular shawls sound amazing! And maybe it's time to go back to my sweater yarn and really create something that I can wear, for me. That I can feel this way on such a hot muggy day is really a testament to the writing. Normally, in this weather, my knitting only gets a few rows or is set aside altogether.
Perhaps this is why my rainbow scarf is almost done...
