Crazydoglady, can you tell us what the ratio of knitting to crochet projects there are?
I just did a quick flip-through, and I counted 40 projects total, 4 of which were crochet:
1 hat
1 scarf (well, 2 scarves, one pattern - when rolled up they look like a smiley face or sushi! so cool!)
3 sweaters

Some of the fun projects in the book include knit stuffed beer bottle pillows, entrelac socks (made out of cascade fixation), a felted messenger bag with an intarsia image of a casette tape on the front, a dead teddy bear that has been impaled by a bee, a scarf that looks like the brooklyn bridge, one of those hidden images scarves that has a pole dancer on it, and a sweater that looks just like the one worn by Ernie on Sesame Street. Oh, and a knitted balaclava that looks like the masks worn by the Lucha Libre wrestlers.

Plus lots of other nice scarves, hats, sweaters and socks and other things in a variety of levels of conservativeness/craziness.  Grin

Only four crochet projects! Guess I'd better start warming up the knitting needles. I'm not that great at knitting yet, but those projects sound awesome.

The bottles incorporate some crochet too; the body is knitted but the cap and base are crocheted (because it's infinitely easier to crochet a circle than to knit one).

My copy hasn't arrived yet, Amazon says I should have it around Tuesday, but a friend showed me her copy tonight and I got giddy.

I got mine this weekend!!! I am so excited. I am making my boyfriend the uncle scarf (argyle doubleknit on the cover) and the Lidsville hat. There are so many great patterns. I think it might encourage my boyfriend to pop the question- he has been eyeing the sweater patterns and he knows about the sweater curse.

Oh I'm so excited for this book!  I always knit for my SO and little boy and the Stitch n' Bitch books are so awesome!  I only started 6 months ago and have knit a ton of stuff!  I'm addicted!  I don't think I ever would have learned if it hadn't been for the first book, it was so great and easy to follow.

hey guys - debbie stoller here again. happy to see your reviews so far! I'm heading out on book tour soon, and trying to figure out which projects to take with me to show in person. Please post here (or email me) the projects you are liking the very best. There are only so many that i can take along with me, since i travel by train and need some room in my suitcase for my own stuff as well, but the items that excite you the most are the best ones for me to bring. thanks!

Well, I would vote for Hangover Helpers, but then again, I'm a bit biased....

I also love the luchador masks, the Deady Bear, and the Ernie sweater.
