Another one to put on the list. I often check them out of the library while deciding if I need to own them. Thanks.

I'm waiting to check it out in person. Seems to me I've already seen some of the patterns on Ravelry...

Thanks for the review... That sounds like a great book. HH used to knit all the time, but the boys chew through the yarn and run off with the skein. HH has given up temporarily, but that book makes her want to start again.

pawhugs, Max
