Anyone checked out this book?  I just found it on the B&N website and am dying to go buy it!

http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/isbninquiry.asp?EAN=9780307346117&x=2111902

The cover sweater is fabulous - has anyone flipped through the book yet?  It's so frustrating to buy a whole book and only like a couple of patterns.

if you wait a few months, it will probably be available at your local library. i don't buy books anymore, i just get them from my library. they have a inter-library loan system.
good luck

I guess turnabout is fair play.  I'm "making" you buy a book, and now you are "making" me!  It looks like it will be out next week.  I'm definitely going to go look through it!

I read something about this book a few weeks ago and loved it so much I wrote the release date on my calendar...lol!  Definitely going to check it out!  Gotta love chunky yarn that knits up quick.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

My boyfriend just ordered me a copy for V-day.  Unfortunately he missed the part of the hint that it already came out.  Oh well, here in a week I should be knitting up my first fabulous sweater.

If anyone knits anything, please post pics!
