I'm not sure if anyone has asked this yet, but I was wondering if there's a way to make the patterns in this book smaller? Because some of them are just gorgeous. :inlove:

the brown and tan one? that one is totally awesome. its just so much money for me. ive already spent 150.00 on a blanket im doing (eep!) i have to wait until that project is complete before going gaga over a large project again.

what was your favorite pattern?

Hmm, a favorite.. I know my Mom really, really liked a sweater that was blue in there, but I'm not sure if I had a #1, there were quite a few I'd like to wear. I know it's not a pattern, but I really, really liked that it explained how to measure yourself depening on how you wanted it to fit, instead of just assuming that everyone wants things to fit the same.

Though (and keep in mind I'm not complaining), I was a little surprised at how much this book cost. Maybe it's 'cause I'm on a college student budget, but whoa. It does have a ton of good patterns, and I understand the work that went into it and all, but eesh. But having said that, you can get it on buy.com for $17.01, wooohooo!!
