Not Knitting

Today I flickr'd "art dolls" which led me to a weird and wonderful collection of imaginings.

Gees! I was so taken I thought to pick up my sewing needle. That, and all that fabric folding. But only for a nano second. Whew!

I ordered your book this weekend! They indicated I'll receive it by March 20. Guess they have to send all the way to Australia for it. I can't wait to get it!

Dear Ms Purlbuttons
Thank you so much for ordering my little book. I never EVER tire of hearing that another one is going to a good home. In fact it will come from the UK. Its due release date in America is April so.. the delay. The publishing business is an odd one. Hope you like it.
Cheers

OMG! Your book was just delivered to my house! I LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT! How on earth did I get it in FLorida, USA on Feb 19? Doesn't matter, I have it! As you said, the publishing business is an odd one. Your book has made me redouble my efforts to find some teapots. Currently I have an I-pot (single serving). I am trying to wiggle some cosy patterns to fit it but I will still keep looking for a "voluptuous" 6-cupper!

Oh wow - that's some of the most inspired work I've seen in a while ... I must leave her a comment. They are eerily beautiful! Thanks for this link P.

Speaking of dolls - I can't wait to see what Hari has whipped up.

Dear Ms Purl Buttons
You can be my friend :-) Now the patterns that are knitted in the round are done on dpns but I don't do that anymore. I have discovered "knitting in the round on two circular needles". Google it for instructions. I am completely hooked on this method and will post about it soon. Very good cheer to you and enjoy!
