My creative order


My latest Amazon order:

DVD:
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.

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

Book:
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" ...lol. 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.
