oh the excitement

i waited....and waited....and waited for my name to be at the top of the holds list at my library. finally i got THE email saying it was mine all mine. i can't even begin to tell you how stoked i am about this book. i know it looks a little outdated (ok a lot) but there is such a buzz about Elizabeth Zimmerman if you are a knitter and i just wanted to see for myself what all the hype was about. i think i get it. it's not that her patterns are the most fashionable but it's the technique behind them that makes then so inspiring. it's really more a formula to use to get any result you can imagine. i'm thoroughly looking forward to whipping up a modular tomten jacket for my son (in blue because he asked for a blue sweater and how can i say no to that) the only thing i'm disappointed about is that i only have this book for 2 weeks. this may be one i haave to splurge on. i don't buy books often because i have access to such a great library but this is the kind of book i can see myself referring back to more often then i could have it checked out (it aparently has a LONG wait list)
