If you are a knitter, then you must be getting it just as much as me. A friend/ a relative or an acquaintance comes up and says "oh, my aunt/mother/whoever used to knit and I have this yarn that you surely can use for something". Or better: they see yarn in stores where normally people do grocery shopping and think they will surely please me by buying it for me. No no no! Only a fellow knitter who knows what I knit and like is able to buy me yarn that I will like. All of the other ones, please stay away from such ideas. Unless you get clear instructions of what and where to buy. I can assure you, no yarn bought in a grocery store will fit my needs.
And now to the books... I'm a reader. I've read a lot through the years and I have a specific taste just like any of us, really. But I'm also weird in a way when it comes to books. I feel that telling which book is a favourite of mine is giving away too much information. And even my friends cannot come up with my five favourite authors. Knowing what books a person has read and liked gives so much away. This is the reason you won't see a 100-books list on this blog anytime
soon ever, really. I do like hearing what you're reading, though.
Oh, by the way, whilst looking at my stashmore picture above I realized that I have used up 14 skeins from it since the picture was taken. Were it all my stash, it'd be almost gone. Lucky me, that's not the case.
