New stuff to play

While the new fabric that arrived today is drying...

.....and waiting to be admired and folded...

....I´m happy reading my book. I wanted this book for so long and now had the possibility to get it! It also came today and I love it! Elizabeth Zimmermann is my knitting Guru. When someone would ask me which book I love most, I would answer "The knitters Almanac" by Elizabeth Zimmermann. But "The Opinionated Knitter" seems to become a favourite too.

Which is your favourite EZ book?

The new fabric (yes I know it´s quite a bit....but you know...shiping and so...) I´ve ordered in two different online stores and both shops are great. M is for make is UK based but with moderate shipping costs to Austria and the shipping was fast! And Volksfaden which is in Berlin/Germany. Usually I don´t like to order from german shops as the shipping is always high and it often takes about 2 weeks (thats my experiances with different yarn and other online shops from Germany)...BUT Volksfaden is different. The shipping costs are not high and they ship fast! I´ve bought 3 times now from them and always got the fabric within 3-4 days. I totally recommend them, and M is for make is small but fast, friendly and nice too.

I wsih you a nice day, but have to go now....offline reading :)
