QUICK! It’s become clear that we have to help with a bailout!
A bloggist whom we admire, Brainy Lady Alison, is trying to offload her copy of Mason-Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines. She’s got to get rid of the thing because it’s TOO BIG to read in the bathtub.
Brainy Lady, we hear ya! It weighs two pounds! It’s a brick! We’re sick of stepping around it all the time! How are we supposed to HOLD it? It’s put us off knitting entirely. Makes us realize how much ROOM knitting takes up. We’re moving on to some tinier craft. Toothpick log cabins. Polymer Barbie buttons. Tatting.
She’s running a giveaway over at her place, so if you’d like to help out with this situation and take on the burden of housing Brainy Lady’s cast-off book at your house, she’s taking entries all weekend.
PS Brainy Lady’s 2004 account of bra shopping in Taipei, here and here, remains one of my favorite stories ever.
