Great Book and wonderful yarn!!

Hello everyone,

Every once in a while, a really great book comes along, jam packed full of
great patterns for everything from baby items to fashion accessories, home
decor items and wonderful quick knits for yourself,or for gifts for family
and friends.

What is even better is that all these patterns use the ever popular Cascade
220 and also the newest Rowan 100% Superwash...both are interchangeable for
all the patterns in this book which really doubles your colour choices. As
the Cascade is felt-able is will be fabulous for the ruffled felted bowls in
page 125, or the fluffy felted elephant on page 148.

In the attached photo you will see the Sweet little Acorn hat on page 90,
and the soft and warm Mesh and matching Cabled fingerless mitts on pages 172
and 146, and the Slip stitch hat  on page 158 .. this is a great pattern for
a baby shower by making one for the new Mom and the baby as well!

If you are looking for a comprehensive book of great patterns, stop by and
check out "60 Quick Knits!"

Happy Knitting!
