TimeOut New York

I really liked the book that my friend Jean was using to guide us around London.  Guess what arrived in the mail the other week.  Yes TimeOut New York, something that I must take the time to use.  And if Jean comes to visit we can use it together, that would be great.  Thank you so much Jean, what a lovely surprise.

So now I have no excuse not to make an effort to visit The Big Apple.



Knitting In Tuscany, by Nicky Epstein

A long while ago I said that I would include some craft books in my reviews.

Well here is a lovely knitting book by Nicky Epstein.  I personally am not a knitter but who could not resist the thought of knitting in Tuscany, one is quite green with envy just thinking about it.

The presentation is of course total eye candy, one is taken to little yarn shops in tucked away places, along with little restuarants to eat at.  Some history of yarn and knitting in Tuscany along with the little hillside towns to visit. 

You will love this book and if you’re a knitter I’m sure it will give you even more practical joy.
