LOL! Well, I don't have my MLS yet but I'm about halfway there. I knit, embroider, watch movies, play computer games, do bookcrossing, but no cats, I'm allergic to cats. Birds of a feather ...

Hi There! Nice to see another DPer around

I'm still shamelessly recruiting for my DP team: Especially created for other librarianish types. Feel free to join (if you have the team space, or just hang out in the team thread.

Hehe I'm a bookworm who knits, crochets, tats (a very little bit), spins (a very little bit), cross-stitches, and embroiders (erm, still in the learning stage on that one). :-P And I would be a librarian if I didn't like those darn physical sciences so much...

Hi everyone, I knit too! I hope to soon be a librarian in training, and I also have a cat. I think I fit the bill.

There is a podcast out there in which you knit according to the podcaster's instructions. It's pretty easy to follow, although not really my thing.

I believe the latest pattern is for socks :D I

oh, Faye, this sounds fabulous! I might give it a try... is it kind of like the mystery quilt projects that were going around in the "90s" (back when quilting was THE thing)? hmmm.... maybe recording the old knitting/needlework books isn't such a bad idea afterall hehehehe

Wow! That is an amazing idea. But she really should have pictures of the finished projects. It can be hard to follow directions without referring to images somewhere along the line.
