    A knitting book after my own heart!

    I'm a fairly new knitter and part of a group of friend knitters. I'm the avant garde one who sometimes follows a pattern. I'm also the one who recycles anything into my knitting; bags, old sweaters, blankets, socks. I'm still learning to work with wool. That bag on the cover is adorably fantastic. I can't wait to find the book, see how it's made and share with my knitty friends.
