    great Christmas present!

    My husband gave me this book for Christmas, and I'm grateful as it shows how much thought he put into the gift. I am forever buying new bags, using them for a month and then discarding them as "not quite right."<BR/><BR/>Immediately upon unwrapping my gift I opened the book, thinking I was just going to glance at a few pages, but instead I ended up reading it straight through.<BR/><BR/>I find "Bags That Rock" to be well written and entertaining, as well as having a nice variety of patterns to choose from. I've found four bags I definitely plan to make, and every time I browse the book another edges its way into that category.<BR/><BR/>My only nit is, on most of the patterns although needle size and finished dimensions (after felting) are given, for gauge they say only "exact gauge is not essential for this project." Paging through the patterns to get some idea what gauge Kelley gets from different needle sizes, I only find gauge on patterns that call for two or more lengths of yarn held together throughout. No help!<BR/><BR/>Maybe in her next book (and I do hope Kelley writes another) she'll amend the above statement to, "although exact gauge is not essential for this project, my gauge using the recommended yarn & needles was ...spi/...rpi."<BR/><BR/>Congratulations, Kelley Deal, on a superb first publication!
