This book would be so useful in my current project, got a whole bunch of yarns and i'm trying to make all the beanies different without using the typical 2-tone patterns. Love to knit while listening to the podcast, i'm a fairly new listener but really enjoy it.

I am using the oak leaf motif that you utilized in your Gnarled Oak Cardigan in "Coastal Knits." You inspired me to make a scarf as a memorial to the Toomer Oaks of Auburn University. (An over-zealous Bama fan poisoned them!) I am knitting it in Madelinetosh Bulky in the "terra" colorway. (Auburn's colors are orange and blue.)
