Has anyone seen the new book "Son of a Stitch and Bitch" ?? I am wondering about the crochet content? I can't seem to find it in bookstores here and don't want to order it off amazon if it only has a few crochet patterns (like One Skein)

There is a post in the Happy Hooker board from someone who looked at the book. She said there were very few crochet patterns.

Wow, if there are only like two sweaters, a few scarves, and a few accessories, that's well not worth it and very disappointing. Sad I think I'll have to check it out myself the next time i go to the bookstore, but if that's all there is in crochet, one could easily go to say crochet pattern central and find similar things for free.

Count me in on the disappointed list. 

I checked it out at Borders today, and wasn't even closed to inspired.  Since I don't knit I can't justify buying a book with so few crochet patterns. Undecided

I flipped through it at Borders.  I knit also, but even then, there weren't very many patterns that I was into.  But then again, most of the stuff I make is for myself.  My boyfriend isn't really into knitted/crocheted things much, and neither are my dad or brother, so I don't really have many men to make things for.  I don't even remember any of the crochet patterns, but I did flip through it quickly.

hey guys! I posted my personal opinion in the thread on the HH board (here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=208047.msg2259501#msg2259501). Personally, I'm excited for the book!
