New Book

I bought The Urban Knitter online the other day, and it came in the mail yesterday. The main reason that I wanted the book was for the cute shoes! The shoes you see on the cover aren't the ones that I want to knit. I want to knit the Ballet Slippers/Mary Janes. I'll post a picture of them later. She also has two patterns for knitted bras. I wonder how supportive a knitted bra would be? I tell you what, I intend to find out. Haha! I just have to make at least one of them for the heck of it. There are a couple of other patterns that I like in there as well. For one, there is a pattern for a chenille pillow. I have some chenille in my stash that I was planning on using for an afghan and pillows to go in my living room. I know that I could just make up my own pattern, but I really like the ones in the book. There is also a really cute halter top pattern that looks super easy, a pretty beaded purse, and a Lattice Pullover. I must say I'm happy with my new library addition.
