The gift of a well chosen book.
When I went to breakfast with my friend R a couple of weeks ago, she presented me with this book. She’s found it in a Wisconsin bookshop, months ago and saved it for my birthday.
Tonight I photographed it with a candlestick and the pair of socks, almost complete- I’m decreasing the toes. You see this poetry book is printed by Candlestick Press! It’s one of their “Instead of a Card” pamphlet series.
There’s even a poem by Emily Dickinson.
You are invited to read the Ten Poems about Knitting poems by a lovely introduction written by Di Slaney (poet and Co-owner of Candlestick Press in Nottingham UK)
Thank you for the perfect poetry book for me and the bookmark’s thoughtful inscription.
I sit and knit. And knit. And knit. And read poems about Knitting.
