thrift shop fines

one can tell if someone has died, or moved, as there will a glut of something at the thrift.   Sometimes its 10 pairs of size 11 shoes, or an entire rack of size 22 high fashion dresses.

Today, it was knitting books.  Picked up just two, at $2 each!  both hardbacks, the swirl coat book I got because the entire swirl coat thing really fascinates me.  Don’t know if I’ll ever knit one, but at least if I want to, I’ll have the patterns to do so.  What I’d really like is a swirl vest.  doubt that its much different, but will require careful thought. 

Meanwhile, the author claims that it requires basic knitting skills and only one seam for the entire coat!
