I just got this in the mail--there was an offer for this and a free felting book and some tapestry needles, so of course I couldn't resist :rollseyes: --I am so glad I did!

It has so, so many beautiful stitch patterns in it. I usually trudge through my other books to look for stitch patterns, but this is all in one place. I know there are other stitch dictionaries out there, but I haven't seen any of them. So, if you're in the market, I'd recommend this one. The only thing I don't like about it is that all the swatches are green. I don't like this particular color green.

It does have some patterns that I've never seen before, that are just lovely. I have a ball of yarn that I think I'll make a short, more decorative scarf from. One of these patterns will make it easy, since I'll be able to stop when I run out. "Other grandma" always has some kind of scarf on, so I'll make her one for Christmas.

Do the stitch patterns have names or are they just numbered? The one stitch pattern book I have just has numbers and I like to talk about patterns using names. #38 means nothing to other people.

I go to our BnN almost weekly and they finally have this book. I liked the layout and had to keep from buying it simply because... what do I tell the famdamily when they ask if there's anything I want for Christmas? It reminds me of the Knitting On/Over the Edge books only with overall pattern blocks instead of borders.
Great, now to go talk myself "Just wait, don't go buy it... wait!"
:study:

I know I can't resist when it comes to knitting stuff. I asked for hummingbird feeders. :rollseyes:
