I want, I need, I would like...
Ah, the magic of "I" language" - you social worky types know just what I am saying...
But really, Wow - I need this. I NEED this - seriously. It's called a Kindle, and you can read all about it here. It is too amazing for words, so just go check it out - I'll wait.
Wowza, what do you think? You can dowload books and magazine and newspapers and blogs, anywhere - anywhere - no wireless bill, it seems like a miracle. I would need to do more research but this is something I may just aspire to. No more spinning wheel thoughts, it's all Kindle baby.
I would also really like this:
Ah, a little more managable right - at less than 10% of the cost of the Kindle, Elizabeth Zimmerman is looking like the steal of the century. I really think as I ponder the Project Spectrum, I would like to also consider EZ - she has inspired and influenced so many great knitters,(namely Jared Flood of brooklyntweed comes to mind)...I need to see what all of the hoopla is about. And I happen to have some Hello Yarn that would like to be a Baby Surprise Jacket.
Perhaps, for me, this year is one to be thoughtful about knitting, I keep coming back to that end - it is different to think about what I want out of my knitting - could it be craft therapy? Getting my craft on, getting a tune-up? I like the sound of that.
(now to slink off and think up an appropriate, somewhat realiatic rationalization why I need to save my pennies for the Kindle...suggestions welcome:)
WAIT, hold the phone - I think the commenters have made some very valid points - I would miss the feeling of a book in my hand. I think the "multi-tasker" in me just wants one more thing to do when I am standing around somewhere. I also remember when the Palm Pilot came out - just had to have one of those - and it now languishes in a drawer...so glad I bounced this off of you guys first. Thanks for "talking" some sense into me!
