Hey, at least it's not yarn!

Handybook_sw_patt_35Rainy dark mornings do not make it easy to photodocument any sweater progress.  That's okay, because I can report instead that I added a volume to the knitting library this weekend.  Actually, it was added FOR me, which is even better.  As an early Christmas gift I received The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns: Basic Designs in Multiple Sizes and Gauges by Ann Budd, managing editor of Interweave Knits.   Between this and my copy of 1000 Sweaters by Amanda Griffiths (although the web listing gives an incorrect author), I may never have to buy another pattern again.  More money for yarn, bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha.

Readers who click on the book links may notice that they lead to Brookline Booksmith's website.  The Booksmith very generously donates a portion of its used-book cellar space to our weekly knitting group, so it's time to return the favor.

 

Such a coincidence! I got the book as an early Xmas gift from my DH just TODAY!

I LOVE that book, and the first one "Knitters Handy Book Of Patterns". I try to convince people that every knitter should own them. Patterns, who needs stinkin' patterns?

I just got my copy of the Knitter's Handy Book. . .

For me, this is what the doctor ordered-- I like the sizing ranges of this book. No more will I see a pattern and go-- how will I get THAT to fit a big chick like myself!

Thanks for sharing, it's nice to know others are as excited about this book as I am!
