So I went out to Barnes and Noble tonight to get away from the house for a bit. Since I stay home with my kids, life can seem kinda dull some days. I've been sick all week and needed a little pick-me-up, so my wonderful husband allowed me some free time. I figured I'd get a hot tea, browse a little, and then enjoy the ambiance while I worked on a charity square. Well, I forgot my hook case, so the crocheting was out. Then I thought, "well, I'll just have to look around and see what there is to see!" What did I see? The crafting section! I spent the whole night reading about crochet instead of doing it. I found this really interesting looking book that I'm kicking myself for not writing down the name of. **Edit: This is the book! Its one of those that I plan to get someday** It was torn up pretty badly, and I was hoping they'd give me some discount for buying it, but the best they would do was 10% off. Not good enough for me! I was highly disappointed to see that as on the internet, knitting is still the main focus of media attention. There were relatively few crochet books compared to knit, and only 2 measly magazines versus the 7-8 knit! I did get my tea, and sipped it over a copy of the latest Interweave Crochet (I need a subscription to that one!). All-in-all a pleasant night out.
