A Good Day For Knitting!

From Katherine Jane:

Today has been a day filled with little knitting moments that make me smile. First, an email from my library:

Dear Katherine:
Thanks so much your suggestions. In response to your email and other requests for works by Elizabeth Zimmerman I am ordering a number of her titles for the Brooklyn Public Library including "Knitting WithoutTears"; "The Opinionated Knitter"; and "Knitting Around."

17 Copies of the "Knitters Almanac" have recently been ordered for the system and are now available for borrowing.

I am also ordering two DVD's featuring Elizabeth Zimmerman "KnittingWorkshop" and "Knitting Glossary."

You should see these DVD's in our online catalog in about two weeks andyou can place holds on them at that time.

Then a non-knitting blog I follow, the Cool Design Concept + Ideas blog, had this as their latest Cool Design:

Says the blog, "The Needle Holder is a convenient way to hold needles while on-the-go, and even at home." The device looks handy, and I love when knitting shows up in the mainstream.\

And finally, an order from that proves I'm just not patient enough for the Brooklyn Library System:

Elizabeth Zimmermann is my favorite knitting writer, hands down. I especially love Knitter's Almanac. I bought it in Maine probably 15 years ago.
