Knitting progress has temporarily stalled, as my copy of Knitting Rules arrived yesterday. Interestingly, despited being listed as "shipping in 1-3 months", it arrived before all the other knitting books I ordered at the same time that were listed as 24 hrs. Guess Amazon has their priorities straight! Aside from (not surprisingly) being terribly funny, it also contains one of my longtime fondest wishes - a recipe for a no frills, knit - to - fit sock. Thank-you Stephanie!
