Reading Knitting Books and Moving On

Not the kind of books you'd think - we were browsing in Books a Million, and I have a bunch of books on patterns and techniques, but I found a couple of books that were just stories. This one by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is like reading somebody's blog with stories about their life - all humorous and usually involving knitting. She has a couple of chapters on dealing with non-knitters' comments which are very funny.

I think this one is my favorite, though. This is a compilation of essays by famous writers (I recognized Sue Grafton's name) on knitting, and it's more serious and touching. I've only read 3 of the essays so far, but this book's a definite keeper.

The rest of my previous week and weekend has been spent signing forms, packing up my office, signing forms, interviewing new clinic staff, signing forms, shopping for a desk for Lucas's room to replace the little kiddie table and chairs I'll be donating to my new waiting room, and signing forms. Next week is my last week at the old job, then I have a week and a half off before my grand opening - wheee! Let's see, that'll involve a week of Spring Break, signing more forms, and wouldn't it be nice if I could find some time to finish the Sammy Cami and whip up that pair of work pants I started....we'll see.

That's great to know -- I'm at my parent's house and just downloaded the second book. It should be a good read from the flight back. I love essays.
