Yet another knitting blog

Since there are so many knitting blogs out there I wasn't going to start one. However, I think my non knitting friends are getting a bit tired of hearing of my knitting adventures. And also, I have a premise for this blog. I've been knitting a little under a year now and in this time I have accumulated some knitting books. Enough knitting books to keep me busy for awhile and yet I still feel compelled to keep buying more. So I am going to make a valiant attempt to knit at least one pattern from every knitting book I own before I buy anymore. (Pattern books, that is. The yarn harlots next book doesn't count and technique books don't either). This blog will also include a little bit of book reviewing.
Here is a list of the books I will be knitting through: (I need to find a way to get this list in the sidebar, but be patient-I've never blogged before)

Wrap Style by Pam Allen and Ann Budd
Scarf Style By Pam Allen and Ann Budd
Knit-2-Together by Mel Clark and Tracey Ullman
Loop-d-Loop by Teva Durham
Weekend Knitting By Melanie Falick
Knitting Nature by Norah Gaughan
Last Minute Knitting Gifts By Joelle Hoverson

One Skein By Leigh Radford
A Gathering of Lace gathered by Meg Swansen
Victorian Lace Today by Jane Sowerby

I am currently working on two projects- Lady Eleanor from Scarf Style and Ribby Wrist Warmers from Speed Knitting. By tomorrow I should have a finished object and a book review of Speed Knitting.
