Buying Books Online

I just bought Baby Beanies, by Amanda Keeys after falling in love with the copy I'd borrowed from the library.

I did it online - at The Huggies Bookclub. If you join the bookclub (which is free), you get a 10% discount on all books and postage is also free! I ordered Baby Beanies as a special order and they got back to me within 4 hours of my email with all the details I needed. I have ordered through these guys before and have been very, very happy with their service and range and it means I don't have to drag the kids into town to buy books (and try to explain the difference between a bookstore and the library)!! And I have no affiliation with Huggies - I just really like their bookclub!
Also, my friend Jo just dropped in a shopping bag full of fabulous retro linen she'd bought from an elderly neighbour who was moving into a home. Some lovely greens, spots and florals - all ready for the Vintage Sheet FQ Swap!!

I have that book...it is awesome. We have made the scarf hat combo for Henry, the alien spaceship for Thomas, the classic cap for Jamie (I think that pattern was misprinted..I had to figure it out myself - still have the corrections if you need it) and the colour pop beanie for me!! Awesome book.

Hope to see some lovely projects from those vintage sheets and pillowcases!

I love this book. I've borrowed it from the library several times and I'm making one of the caps for an aunt's first grandbaby. Happy knitting.

I am making the alien hat too.....I think there is a misprint...did you knit the boggle stitch together with another to keep the same amount of stitches?
