Great New Knitting Book!!!
Purchased this book today at Joann fabrics with my 40% off coupon. It has precise directions on how to measure for a perfect fit for knitted sweaters. I believe I will get it done with this book. I haven’t read it yet, just skimmed through at the store. I’ve been waiting for my coupons to purchase it, so now I should have no excuse for not knitting a sweater. giggle. (Excuse #1: So much to do, so little time. he he) At least when I’m ready (need yarn) I will have all the tools I need. Going to Sheep’s Clothing in Valperaso, IL on April 19, should pick up some yarn then. I will have read the book and done some calculations by then. yipee!

A great choice, Rodezzy - I have it too. It's the perfect book for a creative and adventurous soul like yourself. Hurry up and design so we can get to see pictures of the sweater in progress.
ok, ok, but I must put some quilt making ahead of the sweater, I am also looking for the yarn, and then I will be ready to start it. The quilt show is this year. I have at least three quilts to finish. Oh, I can put Betty Boop in the show, the black and white bed quilt and I'll need a small Silent Auction Quilt for the guild.
Rodezzy, enjoy and can't wait to see what you decide to make! What kind of yarn? This is one book I don't have. But I'm on a yarn/book/sewing supply/pattern diet these days. Must use what I have!
I am on a diet in a way, but I had to have this book, I believe it will get me through my first sweater. Don't have any yarn for a sweater that I love yet. I am going to Sheeps Clothing on April 19, with some fellow crafters/knitters. Will be looking for yarn. But after seeing my Knitty Gritty show this past weekend, I might use some of the alternative yarns they talked about...bamboo, soy, corn, wood w/milk protiens. I can't wear wool, it itches my skin. I can wear it in small amounts in outer wear, but don't have not one wool sweater. So, I will be looking into alternative yarns. This is a biggy for my knitting career, so I want it to fit and be a comfortable yarn to wear. I love sweaters and have very few. And most good sweaters are made of or with wool. So I don't buy them.
