More books from the library. Anticraft Knitting Beading and Stitching For the Slightly Sinister by Renee Rigdon and Zabet Stewart, and New Ideas for Today's Knitting by Jean Leinhauser and Rita Weiss.

Firstly, I have crossed off the Anticraft book. After a quick scan, I found only a few knitting projects, those of which I would *never* in a *million* years even *think* about making. Don't waste your time on this book. There is not enough usable content for anyone.

The New Ideas book also was a waste of time. Yes, it is full of knitting designs, but nothing I would make. A lot of tops and dresses that just aren't my body type. Maybe for some younger women (I'm 42), but just not me.

I totally understand about the Anticraft book. I was really surprised when I saw it in the bookstore. I guess I had the idea of the stereotypical knitter being someone like me. And I'm pretty mom-ish. (Is that a word? You know what I mean.) Although, my young at heart husband thought it sounded cool. But he doesn't knit, so his opinion doesn't count. Haha.
