Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Knit-in

Thanks for your reply.  I decided to stop by and see what it was like but unfortunately the earliest that I could get there was 8:00 (it started at 7:00) and I was just in time to hold the door for a bunch of ladies on their way out with their knitting:smileysad:

Rats.  I hope they'll have another one next month (or two that month, or maybe once per week....:smileyvery-happy:)

I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.

Re: So, what's on your needles?

1. A prayer shawl for my dear friend Arleen who is fighting colon cancer. Just garter stitch and one zillion prayers.
 
2. A beautiful tweedy alpaca and silk cardigan from "Knits for real women"
 
3. My dumb standard baby gift hoodie- just about the time I become a grandma, so do all of my friends.
Someone must put a stop to all this fertiltiy- NOT!
 
4. A cool cotton beach cover-up for my grandaughter that has a beach scene on the bottom. This one proves that grandparenting makes one lose their marbles- no wait- there they are at the bottom of the sock yarn basket!

Re: So, what's on your needles?

Is this a trick question???  I've run out of bags for all my projects.  Let's see....
1.  A pair of baby socks for a gift (size 6 needles and it is flying!)
2.  Scarf (keep in my purse for any occasion when I am bored)
3.  Alpaca scarf for my son
4.  Baby blanket our of Queensland Cotton and Arcania (beautiful mitered corner pattern)
5.  Two belts for my niece
6.  Summer sweater for me
7.  Afghan for my daughter
8.  Three charity knitting projects
 
I've really lost my mind, but would rather have something handy & quick to take.  You also never know what you are in the mood to knit, so having a variety helps me a lot.

Re: So, what's on your needles?

Addict, I thought I was the only nutter who kept knitting in my purse!  And I don't carry a large purse.  But I keep a 12 in. circular #3 or #4 needle with a baby cap going in a little bag in my purse.  I use the end of a ball of yarn so that it is less than 2 in. in diameter, plenty for the cap but tiny in my purse.  You never know when you'll get stuck waiting for a train to pass or waiting for an unexpected appointment etc.  I've finished several caps that way!  The caps go to the knitting ministry at church.  I also keep a bag in the car that I call my school bus knitting (as in "waiting for").  Last year I got enough rectangles done to make an afghan.  I am working on a couple baby or wedding afghans--when they get too big, I can only work on them at home, so of course there has to be another project small enough to carry around.  Lately I've been much better about finishing projects I've started, though there are still several half-knitted socks lurking in my knitting basket.
