Book lust

I'm having a case of major book lust. I'm not sure why. Maybe it has to do with this startitis I have? I see beautiful FOs on Ravelry and on blogs and then I wantwantwantwantwant.

I want this:

And this:

Photobucket


Oh and this:

Photobucket


Problem is: I tend to get books, look at them, love their patterns and put them on a shelf... I have two Nancy Bush books (Folk socks + Knitting vintage socks), Cookie's book and a Latvian mittens book and I haven't knit anything from them yet.

But still. I wantwantwantwantwantwantwant!

Ps/ This "getting up with my alarm" resolution rocks! I have time to blog in the morning!

I'm totally with you on the wanting vs. actually using thing. One of my resolutions for last year was to actually knit from all the knitting books I HADTOHAVE and then never used. Guess how often I did that? Once. On a sweater I hate and will probably frog. Doesn't stop me from wanting the books though!

I hate the "I want I want I want". I get that too...! And then they sit on a shelf - it's bad!!

I also need to start using what I have...! Instead of buying more of what I don't need!

Yey for getting up with the alarm and having time to blog!

I have 2 of those books, the mittens and Nancy Bush books. I got them, looked at them, and put them on the shelves. Never knit anything from them. Just sayin' :)
