Welcome to Erssie Knits

To see my new website, and find patterns to download and more go here to the Erssie Knits website

I have only just joined Good Reads, a social networking site for book lovers. And what a lot of work it is adding all the books I have read! I have only just touched the surface of books I have read and am adding them in all sorts of wierd orders. I was surprised to see myself as currently the 8th top reader in the UK on this site, but this is just because I am new and adding ones I have read like an OCD fiend!!

Once I have got them all on there, the past books I mean, then I will be able to show on this blog what I am currently reading, and what I have recently read which might give you some book ideas. This is what I am currently reading
