Berliner nostepinne & Japanese knitting books

I love trackbacks — you can see what people are saying about things you’ve written or see who’s linking to you. Check this out: Lolly (not this Lolly) made a nostepinne as recommended in Spin to Knit… from a table leg. Too cool.
Emma Jane and I are partnering up to write an article for CrochetMe that relates to spinning. (Evil laugh:) Bwah ha ha ha! Now that I’ve started to convert all the non-spinning knitters, it’s time to start in on the crocheters, too. Hey, it worked on Kim!
What I’m reading at the moment: リメイクニット—ニットを縮めてみたら, aka Remake Knit (available here on Amazon Japan or in NYC at Kinokuniya, where I picked up mine). I could’ve spent thousands of dollars in the knitting & crafts section alone. Do what I did, kids… don’t go into Kinokuniya without a shopping buddy/chaperone who will help you remember that spending the equivalent of your mortgage on Japanese knitting books is just crazy. Fun, but crazy.

    I saw that on her blog – this Lolly and that Lolly are friends 🙂 Very cool!
    and yes, those Japanese knitting/craft mags are so amazing. I wish I had a Kinokuniya near me. I went to the one in NYC and was blown away!

    Where? At Porter Square? I never noticed any there, alas…but the next time you make it down to NYC, go to Kinokuniya for sure!

    I love your book and I’m waiting for you to come and visit me. 🙂 Until then I’ll be waiting for more.

    Yeah, why is it that Japanese knitting is so amazing? And they very kindly CHART EVERYTHING. I’ve been tempted to go on amazon.co.jp and just grab anything knitting-related. The big Japanese bookstore in Porter moved to Arlington, and is now a Century 21 with real estate I can’t afford. 🙁
