As described in an earlier post, I was thrilled to receive Cat Bordhi's new sock book. So thrilled, in fact, that I wound up with two durn books. I first ordered the book from amazon, but was dismayed by the estimated shipping date, which was listed as 4 to 6 weeks away. Having learned on Ravelry (love Ravelry!) that BMFA had the book, I ordered it from them. Notice I didn't say "and canceled my amazon order." But I thought I had all the time in the world to cancel. After all, amazon said it wouldn't ship for 4 to 6 weeks. Ha! Imagine my surprise when amazon came though rather more quickly than estimated.
I thought about returning it to amazon, or even selling it on ebay to help feed my yarn addiction. But after reading Ravelry board posts and learning that so many people really want to get their hot little hands on it, I decided to give one away.
Ever since my Ravelry invitation came through, I've been debating whether to abandon my blog. I don't think many people read it. Maybe I should just have Ravelry? I've enjoyed the blog, and I'm not desperate for readership, but if I write a blog in the forest and no one reads it should I forget about it?
I'll give away my extra copy of Cat Bordhi's New Pathways for Sock Knitters to the commenter to this blog entry who offers the best reason why I should continue to blog. I'll consider all who make a comment by Friday August 31 at 8 pm Eastern. Daughters #1 and #2 will be the judges, and we'll announce the winner by Sunday September 2.
Thanks, and happy knitting!
