Learn to Knit. Arrrrrgh!!!!

I need to vent here. I am making a wishpot list for christmas (I know I haven't made a christmas list since I was a kid- its SO fun!!) But anyhow, I am asking for a bunch of knitting books and I have been browsing through them at the bookstore and on amazon.com. Something is really starting to annoy me about all of these knitting books. Why must they all devote so many pages to teaching the reader to knit. I mean come on seriously. Is it too much to ask for people to buy a knitting instructional book seperately so they could squeeze more patterns in or lower the price. Sorry, but it jusy erks me.

In other news, I really want to write a bunch of knitting pattern books in life. I've decided my first book is going to be a dog pattern book. I better start learning to design patterns. I have the cutest idea for the name! By the end of 2008 I want to have 20 patterns and then I can start figuring out how to get a book published.

Speaking of adorable dogs in clothes- here are some pictures of willow's halloween costume.

Aw, she's so adorable! And I know what you mean about all books having to have about 1/3 of the book dedicated to teaching how to knit. Make separate books about beginning to knit (I know that there's plenty out there for crying out loud!) and just make books for patterns. Drives me nuts, too, so you're not alone!
