Quick one before I head off to lunch and work

So, I tried to like Knit 3 ways, I feel like I gave it a fair chance however I really didn't like this book. I took it back yesterday and Got 200 ripple patterns by Jan Eaton instead. Which I can't find right now, I think someone took it off my desk. That's ok I'm sure it will show up probably with a will you make this note in it.
SO back to knits three ways. The description said " Mix and match elements to create a custome design" I guess I read to much into that. Becuase to me simply changing the yarn you use or the stitch pattern isn't what I had in mind. As far as the patterns go they are either too basic or too odd. There was only one pattern in this whole book that I said ohh that's pretty. For the $32 price tag that wasn't enough for me to keep it. So it went back. I strongly recommend both fitted knits and runway knits. So go buy thoes instead.
I think I'm going to use the soft waves pattern for my ripple blanket. I just need to decide on an enexpensive yarn that is washable, soft and comes in a nice selection of colors.
I practiced my crocheting last night and it's comming back to me. So that's good.
My Dad's taking me to lunch today to celebrate my promotion at work and then I'm off to work. Hey...maybe dad needs to buy me some yarn?
