In addition to all of the beautiful yarn that I received as gifts, I also was blessed with knitting related books and a gift certificate to Webs. I asked for, and was given two of Elizabeth Zimmerman's knitting books; Knitting Without Tears and Knitters Almanac. I'm so excited to finally have my hands on these books, as I've wanted them since I was a fledgling knitter. After all, EZ is the queen of practical knitting (in my opinion, anyway) and I pretty much worship anyone who suggests knitting in the round whenever possible, as opposed to knitting flat and seaming. Additionally, she is a fascinating person, which makes the reading all the more enjoyable.
I saw a sweater on Ravelry last night that I adored, and it was EZ's "pattern"...which excites me to no end...because I can now knit it!
I was also given a $50 gift certificate to Webs, and I plan to use it to buy Noro Silver Thaw in order to make Lady Eleanor. I'm so excited at the prospect of more enterlac!
