Look what DB got me for Christmas:
Yes indeed, it is Alice Starmore's Book of Fair Isle Knitting (not to be confused with feral knitting, which can be found here). This book is out of print, and therefore hard to get a hold of. DB loves eBay, so I asked if he would do the bidding on my behalf. He decided to get it for me for Christmas instead (telling me to stay away from eBay so I wouldn't be bidding against him!)
DB tried many times to get it, but kept getting outbid in the final milliseconds of the bidding process. I suggested he wait until after Christmas, as everyone else was probably trying to buy the book as Christmas presents too. But he wouldn't give up, and finally succeeded by making a big final bid to blow everyone else away.
The book arrived by media mail last week. It is chock full of great info.
As for DB, it look's like he's a keeper.
