I picked this book up the other day (on vacation) and have to tell you about it. It's a basic book, EXACTLY what I was looking for. Whether you're looking for sweaters, mittens, socks, gloves, hats... the idea is simple. You figure out your gauge (for any yarn and any needle) and it sets out a basic pattern for almost any size - child to adult. Talk about cool!
I haven't yet made anything out of it, but I'm looking forward to giving it a try when I finish my daughters "Wonderful Wallaby" sweater. This may possibly become my favorit knitting book...period!
(Ok, second or third perhaps to the Knitting (Man)ual or Knitting with Balls....) :-)
Grace and Peace,
