Ok, I just got my first Kaffe Fassett book:

http://www.amazon.com/Kaffe-Fassetts-Pattern-Library-Creative/dp/1561586633

and I can only say wow! I picked it up because it was on the sale
table at the bookstore and said it was a pattern library so I thought
it would make a nice addition to my knitting book collection. Now
that I've had a chance to sit and look through it I'm so glad I decided
to buy it. These color patterns are amazing!! I'm thinking there
will be a slew of throw pillows for Christmas this year so I can play
with these patterns hehe

I've heard Kaffe Fassett mentioned in passing and now I know why
people are so impressed with these designs :)

Yes Kaffe Fasset's work is amazing! Even his stuff from the 80's, if done in different colors perhaps... would look beeeaaauuutiful. (The local library has a book of his from the 80's... wow, just... wow :rofl:).

He also does (did?) quilt patterns that are awesome!

I have a couple of his quilting books. He is so inspirational and his use of color is exciting.
