    the idea of having some knitting books instead of loose papers would be glorious. i have a dedicated corner in our house that is full of wools, beads and fabrics, to the dismay of the rest of the family. so solid books would be a great addition. doing all this needlework helped me to stop smoking 3 years ago, and i am not willing to stop my crafts even though the arthritis is starting to bug me. so carry on with the patterns and ideas. :-)))
