Knitting Rules!: The Yarn Harlot's Bag of Knitting Tricks by StephaniePearl-McPhee

For the first time in my life, I've completely stopped reading fiction. In fact, I'm not reading much of anything, but when I do pick up a book, it's of the non-fiction variety, and I may or may not finish it. But I read this in a few days. It's not long, and Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is funny, so her books are easy to read. Even the patterns are easy to read and funny. And I read them all. I haven't knitted socks yet, but this book made me want to. Also, now I want to knit a circular shawl. Knitting something round sounds so interesting.

Now if I can just finish Jon's sweater and get the sleeves to look the same! That is my current crisis. (I'm not using a pattern, and I'm afraid I didn't write down what I did with the first sleeve faithfully enough.)
