Poor Little Hurt Books
It was probably worth the suffering, though, as there are only 45 books left tonight, as I list this link for you... you can still get several beading titles, Dogs in Knits, Hip to Crochet and several others.
What did I order? I fell for A Dyer's Garden, dreaming of planting some herbs for natural dyeing, something I have dabbled in over the years. I was passionate about dyeing yarn a few decades ago, after taking a natural dyeing class that led to a Navajo weaving class, where I employed some of my own handspun, hand-dyed yarns in a sample weaving on a loom that my girlfriend and I built, our first exercize in carpentry. How empowering!
I also ordered Felted Knits, on the promise of being able to learn to finetune my felting processes to more accurately get the size I was hoping for, and to learn to add needlefelted embellishments to my felt projects... those of you who are regular readers will recall that my more rebellious side is deeply in love with the idea of deliberately throwing something made from wool into hot, agitating water in order to turn it into something different.
Not wanting to be gluttonous, and also getting totally fed up with how long it took the Interweave site to move from sale page to sale page (there were originally 15 pages with at least ten titles apiece), I only ordered one more book, Lacy Knitting of Mary Schiffmann. This sounds like the sort of title that makes Interweave Press such a wonderful resource for fiber artists; the stories and designs of an obscure but master lace knitter... should make for happy winter reading.
