我終於買到Knitscene Winter/Spring 2010了

前幾天提過我比較喜歡的編織雜誌,其中一本Knitscene是這個月才開始留意的。最新一期已是一月份出版的2010年冬春號,書店早已不見存貨了。

通常過期雜誌都可以上網到出版社找到,然後付郵費就可以買到。可是這一期的Knitscene卻找來找去也找不到有人賣過期版。很多地方都沒有存貨。

我之所以要找,是因為我想織裡面的一件開胸小外套,設計很簡單,有點像男人唐裝的開襟,但配合修腰的設計,又顯得很女性化。

如果雜誌中某一款織圖受歡迎的話,半年後很有可能會在網上出售的,織圖以單件計算,價錢一般是美金六元,雜誌原價七塊九毛九。如果你要織雜誌中的兩個織圖,而這兩固織圖又出售的話,隨時要付上比買雜誌更高的價錢才能買到織圖。

況且,編織這東西是講興致的,一有興致就想織,擱涼了就提不出興趣了。

我在一間網上毛線店找到存貨,一問郵費,要八塊九,比雜誌本身更貴。如果單單為了一個織圖去買,就太不值了。

在差不多要放棄時,忽然想起織民們愛去的論壇,那兒可能會找到救星。

皇天不負有心人,我找到一個織民在幾天前留下的說話,說電子灣有人放書,價錢是原價,郵費很合理,只是幾元。

竅妙之處是,放書的人大槪不是織民,竟然將雜誌名字打錯了,所以很多人都找不到這賣主。這位好心織民的留言就點破了這一點,於是我就馬上去找找。

真的給我找到,而且是最後一本﹗急忙買下來,付了款,靜靜地等我的書。

不用幾天,雜誌就寄來了。

這個故事教訓我們:不想人生那麼戲劇化、波濤起伏的話,做事千萬不要拖。我早陣子在紀伊屋書店看到的日本編織書,今天再去看時已賣光了。所以,做人真的不要拖泥帶水。

  1. A lot of people can’t spell, myself included, and are grossly careless in listing their stuff. I got a Canon F-1 for what I think a very good price from Craigslist in part because the seller spells it as Cannon (the other reason being me such a nice guy of course). It happens all the time.

  2. haha…I like your last sentence.

  3. 前幾天我也寫了篇日本編織書的事,剛巧那也是店裹的最後一本。

  4. Only the last sentence? Oh boy, I have over estimated myself.

    Wow, seems like you have turned to full time knitting and weaving kind of things. What are you going to do when you are really old? You got to save all these knitting business when you are old. I am holding off knitting for another 2 years when I start collecting social security.

    PS: I hope you didn’t bid early and bid often because I would just hate you for doing that.

    上次我見到是不捨得買的,十八塊多薄薄一本,連稅的話過二十元。後來發現網上買更貴。唉,算了,鄰居有鄰似的,遲些問她借吧。

    lcl,

    You don’t know that you always over estimated yourself here and there?

    I’m, really old. You don’t need to remind me. 😦

    You haven’t started to collect SS yet? I thought you have had it 2 years ago…

    Don’t worry about bidding at eBay. I don’t do it. I asked my hubby to do it for me. By the way, he won’t bid on Canon.

  6. Just in case you don’t know, there is this big magazine shop on 40th St between 5th and 6th opposite Bryant Park, they carry all kinds of art and craft magazines, including knitting.

    你講的是Kinokuniya紀伊國屋書店,我間中會去逛的。在Grand Central附近也有一間的。Bryant Park這間是幾年前開的,現在的地庫是放編織書的,二樓是漫畫。

  8. I don’t know if the link would work or not. But no, it’s called Around the World, it’s run by our friends from India. It has all kinds of magazines from around the world, hence the name of the store.

  9. OKAY, one more time.
    If it doesn’t work, I am so sorry.

  10. lcl,

    Oh, I know which one you’re talking about. I go there sometimes too. Just behind the Reference Library. They won’t carry the magazine I want. They’re mostly hi-fashion magazines.
