The ¿old¿ sweater set has come back into its own. My daughter gave me one a couple of years ago and I wear it all the time. In today¿s age of air conditioning and with the changes in weather, I never know if I will be hot or cold so the sweater set is perfect.<BR/><BR/>Get your needles out and make yourself your own version of this old classic. TOGETHER OR SEPARATE is the new twist on what they are now calling Twinsets. Whatever they are called, here is a book that will help you make on just for you.<BR/><BR/>Another thing I have never seen is a knitting book and an exercise book combined together. TOGETHER OR SEPARATE does just that. The author makes suggestions of exercises to do in her ALPHABET OF MUSINGS section right along with definitions and how-to¿s.<BR/><BR/>Each pattern, of which there are nine, has a skill level, size, finished measurements, gauge and a materials list to start the pattern off. The knitting directions are clearly written and the book has a ¿built-in book mark¿ so you won¿t lose your page when you have to put your knitting down to fix supper.<BR/><BR/>You say, only nine patterns! Remember, this is Twinsets so you get 18 patterns. The plasticized cover is nice so cookie brownie crumbs will wipe right off. And don¿t forget the reference pages. Abbreviations, glossary and basic knitting steps are given here. A yarn weight chart, skill level definitions and metric conversions are on one page and resources on another. The very back ¿book mark¿ has a mini-bio of the author.<BR/><BR/>If you need something to keep your hands busy and need a new Twinset, grab TOGETHER OR SEPARATE and you will be all set.
