"Classic Knits: 15 Timeless Designs to Knit and Keep Forever" by Erika Knight. Oh yes.
This is the Wrap Around Coat. Lovely. It's knit on big needles in a chunky yarn and actually has a very good variation in sizes.
And then there was this little off the shoulder number called Bardot, (as in Bridget Bardot, though I may not be spelling her name right):
There are 15 patterns and at least seven that I'd definitely knit for myself, (wallet and cash flow willing). I think that's what makes buying books worth the $19.95. I've gotten sick of buying one book featuring one pattern. It's all so disappointing. Which makes me think I might go ahead and sell a book or two while I'm at it.
Recycle. It's good for the Earth. It's good for Knitters.
