This Week In Books or Go Ahead And Laugh

Why yes that is Vampire Knits the book I made fun off just a few months ago. I gave it a few looks in the store over the past week and decided besides the horrible horrible concept and some of the horrible patterns there are actually some really pretty things in here.  Also decided to go low-tech tonight with the picture, for a camera phone picture that's not bad though!

  1. Great books !! Many of them are on my wishlist. Happy Reading!
    Here's what I got In My Mailbox

  2. Looks like you got some great reads this week. Can't wait to see what craft items you make with those books. :-)

  3. Please Ignore Vera looks awesome :)

  4. I love the cover for Vampire Knits. Like there's something mysterious in the story (haven't read the synopsis, so I may be waay off).

    Great books. =)

  5. The fact there is *actually* a book in print called Vampire Knits makes me giggle.

  6. I'm not laughing - I'm totally jealous of Please Excuse Vera Dietz!

  7. Every time I see your knits (background or foreground) I sigh and wish I knew how to knit. I want a cute little rainbow knit cap so bad. LOL, I'm just not talented. :P

  8. Dazzling Mage- It's actually a book of knit patterns for people that are obsessed with vampires, which I am not, but I liked some of the patterns haha!

    christina- Most of the stuff I've been showing lately is actually crochet, I can suggest resources if you are interested in learning!

  9. Alea, you make me laugh. Hopefully this will make you feel better - another friend of mine who is into knitting ALSO made fun of that vamp knits book with me at the same time - she looked through it just last week (almost same time you told me you did) and said there were some decent patterns in there.

    So, I guess the book is ok, even if I think people should wear a disguise when they buy it so no one sees them. ha!

    I'm SO excited for that Witchcraft book! I hope you can make some cute things from it!!

  10. I love that Vampire Knits! Can't wait to see what you make from it.

    I got Violence 101 too, just randomly showed up!

  11. great books, and i love the knitting ones! (vampires or not) hope you enjoy them all!! happy reading and knitting!

  12. Great books you is my IMM:

  13. fab books - I love seeing your random knitting ones - makes me think I should pick up the sticks again! I am a new follower!

  14. I'm really looking forward to Jump Start the World.
    Isn't The Other Girl an older release? I think it came out last fall. Is this for the paperback release?

    and you know already, I bought the Witch Craft one, too. I think I might make the witch!

  15. Whoo hoo, sounds like you got some great books this week!! New follower here!

  16. cat- I agree, luckily the store was so packed i think I was barely noticed!

    Kelly J- I have no idea about The Other Girl, I do know it was a paperback though!

    Welcome new followers, hope you enjoy :D

  17. I was considering "Vampire Knits" for the same reason .. some of them are yuck! but a couple are really cute!

    I need to start seeing some "just showed up" books in my ....

    never mind ... just actually looked at my review pile ... I REALLY don't need any to "just show up" .. but ... no ... really...

    Have a great reading week!
