A Great New Book

We've been getting quite a few new books in at mlys (still working there) and we split the new books among those that are working to read through and try them out for test run.

I've been wanting to design my own stuff and so I jumped at the chance to check this one out:

Teach Yourself VISUALLY Knitting Design: Working from a Master Pattern to Fashion Your Own Knits

Long title, but WOW, what a great book. It has sections on designing scarves, gloves, handwarmers, hats, bags, vests, sweaters...It also has great stitch pattern references and makes it easy to adapt your pattern to any yarn, any weight, any style.

I need to say this: ITS FREAKIN AWESOME.

Sorry...back under control now. Heading out on vacation for a few to enjoy the 19th anniversary of my 21st birthday (Friday the 13th). Take care all, and if you get a chance check out this book!

Anyone have access. . .

To sweetGeorgia Yarns? I'm looking for two hanks of their laceweight in the 'Coffee Bean' colourway. I can't seem to find anyone who has it online...

Hello - anybody ...

Seems like days since anyone has posted anything. Am feeling withdrawal. But my needles are still clicking away.
