No Sheep for You (http://www.amazon.com/No-Sheep-You-Cotton-Delights/dp/1596680121/sr=1-310/qid=1170101081/ref=sr_1_310/002-0895003-4763207?ie=UTF8&s=books)

I really don't get this. :shrug: What does being naked have to do with knitting? This is one book I certainly would not take to work.

I imagine it's because it's patterns made from fibers you can wear right against you skin (i.e. not wool)... if not then... :shrug: beats me!

Looks like that's exactly what it is.

Plus it's eye-catching and edgy and cool. It might get people who wouldn't otherwise think about knitting to look at the book and maybe buy it.

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Marketing.

My interpretatin was that if you aren't wearing wool you have nothing to wear????

Very silly. Talk about trying to make knitting seem sexy. I bet the model doesn't know how to knit.

Or maybe this is the knew look fro knitting in public??? :rofl:

I don't get it either.....

*Shrug* :shrug: Whatever works I suppose.

I'm still trying to get my Event Coordinator at Michaels' to let me put up signs that say "Hookers do it faster... ask about classes! " :teehee: So far she says NO... I just can't figure it out :?? :teehee: :roflhard:

I don't think it's a big deal. It doesn't look like porn or that they are advocating nude knitting. Just a silly gimmick. :shrug:

Knitpicks offers a slightly better synopsis (http://knitpicks.com/books/itemid_30899/books_display.aspx#). Amy Singer is allergic to wool. She cant wear it against her skin.

The thing that I find funny is that if you "look at the inside pages" on Knitpicks' page, she's wearing ALL KINDS of stuff under her BATHROBE, but is wearing only what God gave her on the cover. Its like raaayaaaain on your wedding day, isnt it?? :teehee:

I think it's just her sense of humor. After all, she did found knitty.com which does have a fair amount of humor.
