I broke down and ordered Viking Patterns for Knitting the other day (I missed out on the super-cheap one on Overstock.com -- ya snooze ya lose). I'm justifying it by telling myself I will knit Christmas gifts out of it. (There a couple of hoodie cardigans I want to knit. Then there's the new book... and the Silky Wool yarn...)

I have the shipping notification from BN sitting in my inbox. It's taunting me... just like the box my engagement ring was in taunted me from across the room. fumefumefumefume....

i feel: frustrated frustrated

I love when I click on a link for Viking Patterns for Knitting and instead get a recipe for Chocolate Ricotta Pie! Mmm. Pie.

That is what we in the biz like to call serendipity.

The Viking Patterns book, however, is here.

I know, I lurk your journal. And at the risk of sounding like one of those crazy people, it's just that I idolilze you!;) Eh, moreover it's that you have interests similar to mine, but more educated (sca, spinning, advanced knitting, etc. etc.) than I've yet time or effort to make myself.

However, I do have to ask out of romanticatheart curiosity - the ringbox taunted you? So you knew it was coming..did he still manage to surprise you? :D

Aw.... you make me blush! (I just read a lot, really...)

Rather than rewrite the whole story, I'll just direct you here. It wasn't really a ring box, it was a cardboard box that the ring came in. It taunted me. Oh, how it taunted me.
