Happy Early Birthday To Me!!!
If anyone ever wondered just who was the coolest, hottest, best-est boyfriend in the whole wide world, allow me to tell you. It's MY boyfriend!!!! Tonight he gave me two of my gifts a week early. Now, we all know already just how amazing loop-d-loop is. BUT, AlterKNITS which was released a few days ago, & I have been DYING for, is FU**ING amazing. I LOVE this book!! There is really cool shit in here! Very inspiring, very alternative, & not alternative in a blink 182 lame-o kinda way!! There are tons of patterns for really cool sweaters, shawls, scarves, hats.... etc. AND, patterns for purses, laptop bags, crepe paper crowns, lanterns, a screen door, a corset/bustier, leather wrist cuffs, baby stuff (don't worry only a couple, & they are cool), a felted bulletin board, & my fave, a dress form decoupaged in yarn labels!!!
And sprinkled throughout there are pretty cool "creativity exercises". Like describe your knitting action hero, or color class experiment, & lots more. Some of them are meant to be shared in a group, while others to be explored alone!!
YUMMMY BOOK!! YUMMMY boyfriend!!!! XOXOXOXOX to Chrissy!!
