I love that you bound grindhouse-style movie posters into book form!  My boyfriend grew up watching saturday afternoon grindhouse movies; I might have to assemble my own homage for him, too.

and, the crinkled pages add just the right amount of grittiness.

I love the color!  I'm working on this vest right now ... I mean, I was working on it last week until I set it aside in favor of other projects, but your beautiful FO is inspiring me to just finish already!

thanks for the comments! The scarf is a pretty straightforward project; after I wet felted the scarf, I folded it over to make a small loop at one end and needle felted the edge down.  needle felt a puff flower and adhere it to the front of the loop end, and voila!

I'm altering the BFC pattern so it will work on size 15 needles with reynolds blizzard ... I've got the gague and everything figured out, but I have one question about the wording of the pattern.  When the pattern specifies AT SAME TIME (regarding shaping that happens after 6 rows), does it mean at the same time  you're working the established pattern, or at the same time you're working the first part of the body? 
I'm using the excerpt from canadian living, if that helps at all.

what a gorgeous jacket!  That was one of the only patterns that caught my eye when I flipped through the book, and now yours has made me look twice ... I might have to put it on my ever-increasing "to knit" list.

in a coptic bound book, signatures are sewn into the boards, and often the spine is exposed. For these case bindings, signatures are sewn together, outfitted with spine liners, and glued into a case (usually you glue the endsheets onto the inside front and back cover).  I love books with exposed spines because they look different from the kinds of books you could buy in the store, and they take a lot fewer steps from start to finish.

thanks lody and svanalyn!  During the semester, making these babies was nearly torture ... I just wanted to go back to coptic styles and be done with it, but now that it's over, and I don't have to adhere to deadlines or stress out about making each book as perfect as I possibly can, I'm having a lot more fun with them.
