Name dropping

Have you seen this book? Nicky Epstein's Knitting Never Felt Better. It's great and is a must have for all of us who don't have enough knitting books. Personally I have loads of knitting books, but they look so nice on the shelf and are so very lovely to look through. I often browse the bookshelf and decide what to cast on next. More often than not I forget, or find something else the next day, changing my mind more often than I care to think. Fickle, that's me.

I love Nicky's books. I feel I can be informal and call her that rather than Mrs Epstein as she spoke to me once. Kathryn and I went to the Knitting and Stitching exhibition at Alexandra Palace and she was there signing books. Didn't buy any then - spent all money on yarn - but Nicky (there I go again!) admired my scarf. How kind, I thought, that this lady is admiring my clothes. It wasn't until we left the stand that Kathryn told me who it was. I had no idea she was a famous VIP, didn't recognise her. But I will next time Nicky, promise. I will be suitably awestruck in the presence of such greatness, I will creep and grovel and might even buy a book from you. Providing there's room left on the shelf of course!

my book shelf is heaving I must say...I do love my books and enjoy gathering a few together ans sitting back and browsing. I've often come across Nicky's books but haven't bought any yet no doubt I will now you've sewn the seed! Oh and I've not forgotten the CD, it's in B's car and unless I'm in it to remember to bring it in, it will stay there!
