The next book is called Knitting New Scarves by Lynne Barr. Let me tell you that the scarves in this book are amazing - completely unique and just wonderful. I can't wait to try a few of her unique patterns to give as gifts. These scarves are conversation pieces.
Speaking of knitting - has anyone heard of this game called "Hat Attack"? Essentially you join a group, they send you a pattern for a hat and you have to knit it up and send it to your target as quickly as possible. If they receive the hat before they are finished knitting their own they are "dead" and must post their death on the Yahoo board for this group. I totally missed this but it sounds like a ton of fun (sign-up deadline was February 6th). It is modelled on something called "Sock Wars" which I assume is similar.
