:rofling: My hubby may also kill me when the credit card statement arrives. I broke my foot and am in a cast for 6 weeks, so I have been consoling myself with internet purchases
I have to say that I was impressed with the book for the $18 price tag on Amazon (normally sells for $30)...it is a nice, big book with a very handy spiral binding.
I want to get to the point in my knitting that I can look at a sweater and truly understand how to make it, or have an idea for a certain fit or style and be able to create it without searching around for a pattern, and then the yarn to fit the pattern. I'm hoping that something will just "click" with me by the time I work through the book. (hmmm...I guess the next step would be to have the patience to start and actually complete a whole sweater!!
