Books for Christmas!

Some books I bought for myself for Christmas. Well I tell myself that everything I buy in the month of December is "for Christmas". The first book is actually one I bought with last year's gift card. Yes I hold on to those things for-ever! There are just so many books I'd like that I often have such a hard time picking one.
But I finally made a decision that I had to have this one after weeks of ogling it in the store!

I'm really in love with small little softies lately. Especially with my dwindling supplies of fabric they are easy to whip up and to make lots of them in a pinch.
I haven't tried any of the patterns yet because I just got this yesterday but I'll try and remember to post some pics when I do.

The next book I got was Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitting Workshop.

I found it at this little used book store we have that seriously rivals the Library of Congress in how many books it has. This was at the very bottom of a large stack and I was so happy to find it. I've really been wanting to try her Heart Hat design for awhile now and that is in this book.
