I was listening to the Yarniacs podcast and they had Wendy Bernard on the show. Towards the end she talked about her new book...no sooner than I heard the description I was on Amazon.com purchasing it.
This book is BRILLIANT! Wendy swatched tons of stitch patterns and then converts them from flat to in the round and then if it is a directional pattern she converts it from bottom up to top down (no more upside down lacy leaf motifs!).
I am so excited to use this book - I have some projects coming up for Knit 1-2-3 and this book will be on the coffee table next to my favorite knitting chair. Brava Wendy!
