My dh just deployed a week ago for 60 days. A friend of mine that I know through a stay at home mom board shares my interest in knitting. Although she's done it much longer than I have, she's no where nearly as addicted. :rofling: Anyway, she sent me a note a while ago to watch my mail because she sent me something to keep my mind off of dh being gone.

I just went and got the mail & she sent me Stitch & Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook.

She is so wonderful!!!! I can't wait to start knitting some of these patterns. :heart:

Oh, that's so sweet! My fiancÚ was deployed to Iraq for the first year and a half we were dating. I wish I'd known how to knit then! Enjoy your book and best wishes for his safe return!

Hi knitaddict! :) My husband was stationed in Saudi Arabia several years ago. OH how I wish I had known how to knit back then. I was in Germany and spent a year with him gone thinking I had nothing to do but take care of my then six month old baby! What a sweet friend you have to have thought of you when you are going to missing your husband so. :heart:

What a sweet and thoughtful thing to do!

What a great idea. :D

:pray: for your husband.

How sweet of her to do that! :cheering: You will love that book!

what a cool and kind friend! That book is great!

That is such a thoughtful thing for your friend to do! :D

S&B was the first knitting book I bought when I learned to knit (here). Though I've only knit one of the patterns so far, the "how to" sections helped me alot as I was first learning. I still refer to it often, and one of these days will get around to knitting some of the patterns.

I love your scripture picture! :thumbsup:

That is such a sweet gift! What will be your first project?

I'm thinking of making the little black top. I'm also toying with the idea of the pet bed. My cat has a basket with a fleece blanket in it, but since I've started knitting she prefers to sleep on my stash. :rollseyes: I'm wondering if I make her a bed out of yarn if she'll sleep on that instead. ;)

oh yeah! My kitties love wool. There is a free "kitty pi" pattern here (http://wendyknits.net/knit/kittybed.htm) too if you like it better.

Ohhhh! I like that one, too!! :cheering: That's the only problem I have with KH - I want to knit every pattern I see on here. :roflhard: TY for the link.

:roflhard: me too! I've gotten so many ideas for projects here I couldn't possibly knit them all in one lifetime.
