My book stash
Don't get me wrong, I can sit for hours looking through those bookalicious patterns but, owning the books doesn't translate into making the object and if I don't get up and out of the book store and go home to knit, well, I'm just obsessing right?
After reading the article, and thank you to Clara H. Parkes and her Knitter's Review newsletter for bringing it to my attention, I'm reminded of that other warning headline, "Is there a housing bubble?" The real estate market was doing fine until some brainiac economist decided that we should be doing something else with our money. So, all you knitters out there who buy yarn and books, make sure you don't stop because some market analyst decides they want you to do something else with your money and time. Just who would want us all to stop making baby hats and socks and scarves and log cabin blankets and socks and shawls and socks... anyway?
