Every day I marvel at the wonder that is the internet. Not so much from a technical perspective (thinking about how it actually works gives me a headache) but because of the way it enables people to link to each other – I am constantly amazed by the number of knitblogs out there – I keep following links and finding new ones that inspire me – my list of favourites is getting out of control!
And of course the other thing about the internet – a whole new world of shopping opportunities! Have I mentioned how I LOVE the internet!!
I received a great present from Mr/Ms Posty on Monday at work – my first Regia and Trekking sock yarn ordered on eBay – how exciting and how difficult to chose which to make for me or husby and which to make as gifts – I want to keep them all – and I want to gift them all as well. I should have ordered more… I’m so pleased with the colours, the Trekking looked bluer on the net but is really shades of purple, which is even better!
Then when I got home, another surprise – I subscribed to Interweave Knits and they had a special where you get 5 editions for the price of 4. So I’ve received my first edition (the Fall edition) a couple of weeks ago and my freebie arrived on Monday (the Summer edition). Hurrah! More inspiration and projects for the unending list. I think if I locked myself away for a year and did nothing but knit (and NOT look at the internet, knitting magazines and books) I might only just get through the stash and would still have projects on the list.
(Who am I trying to kid, I could never go without the internet, knitting magazines and books for a year!)
