Chapters versus Rows

This Christmas holiday I received a number of books…this does not bode well for the knitter.  I am often posed with that dilemma, finding time in my day for both. I do not mean a few pages here and a few rows there, I mean the investment of time it takes to commit to a project or book, I want that kind of time.  So, in my latest novel, I blended my two passions. 

I am collector, connosieur, absolute fanatic for young adult fiction.  I rarely make my way in to adult fiction, dwelling on the prephiery of non-fiction and dabbling with fantasy.  I find adult fiction a little too…I don’t know… real, depressing, I honestly don’t know what. I have my odd go around with it. I read a few this year but really, when I want a good book you’ll find me in young adult. 

This in mind, over the past ten years I have searched for titles that deal with the fiber world both in young adult and children’s literature. This could include dyeing, spinning, weaving etc…Well, I got another book this year for my collection and I thought it would be fun to share with you a few of my favorites.  If you can spare a few rows or bobbins make some time this year to check out these titles.
