I saw this booklet in the latest Mary Maxim catalog and I'm considering buying it. Does anyone here own it and what do you think of it?????

Are you glad you bought it?? Just want some other opinions on it beforehand!!!

Thanks,

Is this a brand new booklet? I ask because Amazon doesn't have any reviews on it yet. I always refer to their reviews before I buy a book I haven't seen, but that's not helping this time around! Hmmm!

Boy you do like exclamation and question marks don't you. :lol:

I don't know anything about it and I probably wouldn't buy it because there are so many patterns online or available. I prefer to buy them singly if I'm buying. Most books I don't use more than one pattern anyway if I use any at all.

Here's the link to it (I think?) It appears to be cheapest at Knitpicks and you can see some of the patterns in the book.

Thanks for those links. I do have tons of baby blanket patterns already, but the one on the cover looked cute.

My husband will be glad I checked here first and avoided spending that $$!
