My creative order

My latest Amazon order:

Lucia und der Sex (Lucìa y el sexo, Sex and Lucia). A spanish movie staring Paz Vega (Spanglish). A beautiful, sensual and inspiring movie. It's not about sex in first place, it's about relationships between lovers, parents and friends. About a writer who struggles with his story and the story somehow becomes alive, or he is just writing down his live.... that's up to the viewer.

Unheimliche Geschichten (Scary Stories) by Edgar Allan Poe. I am so excited about this one. Can't wait to start reading it.

Das große Buch vom Stricken (The big book about knitting).
Since I've discovered so many creative artists on the web, I was thinking about doing it again. I haven't knitted since I was about ... I don't know ... maybe 12 years old... so that is 12 years ago - my god.
And all these artists I know on the web are very young, so knitting and crafting isn't something for the "old ones" - it's getting modern again. I know a knitting circle here at my hometown with members of 20 years and younger.

I barely managed to figure out how to post a comment on your blog here (it's all in German and I'm so NOT good at it!!!!)

So, here I am... love your purchases ...that knitting book is so inviting since I'm what my family calls a "stricken monster" Is this one any good? (They often look good on the outside but are totally useless crap on the inside.)

it's all german? ooops... i thought it might only be in german for me...

the book is not bad, I just got started. I had to start again from nothing, so first it was a bit hard, but it's well described (with pictures). I think if you are a bit experienced it can be a wonderful book.
they describe nearly everything - how to create space for buttons, and so on.
1 point minus is that there are no instructions how to knit a bag or decorative stuff. it just shows pullovers, shirts and stuff like that.
