Okay, I've fallen hard for the Log Cabin afghan and I want to purchase one of their books. I don't even know if there is more than one but does anyone have a preference? Please help me decide. I'd like one that gives projects and has the most info. TIA Mary

I may be wrong, but I think there is only one book at the moment which I have had from the library." The Curious Knitters' Guide: Stories, Patterns, Advice, Opinions, Questions, Answers, Jokes, and Pictures" The log cabin is in that. I believe there is another book coming out soon.

Yeah, there's just one right now, and it's totally worth getting. I LOVE it. BUT, there's a new one coming out in September, too: Mason-Dixon Knitting: Outside the Lines: Patterns, Stories, Pictures, True Confessions, Tricky Bits, Whole New Worlds, and Familiar Ones, Too. Hooray!

:teehee: I had a hard time choosing, but I ended up going with #11 - Froogle the cat in the hoodie. That one was sooo cute!

:thumbsup: I ended up with "bunny in a summer dress" but like you say...so hard to choose.

Very hard to choose, but I voted for Kermie the Frog. I'll always vote for him. (My son, now 28, called him "Kermie a Throg" when very little. :inlove: )

As far as the book, doesn't it come out in September? I preorderd it on Amazon. Lots less expensive.

About having to wait, I have to wait until December 25th for the next Star Trek movie. Too long!
