Graphic Knits

Every Friday night, Chris and I go on a "date"- out to dinner, watch a movie, wander through a book store. This weekend, we cashed in some left over Christmas gift cards at Barnes and Noble. I'd been saving mine for just the right treasure- and on Friday, I found it!!!

Hip, Graphic Knits by Rochelle Bourgault and Lisa Evans gives instruction on how to incorporate graphics into your knitting, or onto purchased knits. They even tell you how you create your own graph from a photo or illustration. There are several patterns, as well as a gallery of graphs you can use on a whim. My favorites include, the Eiffel Tower, a peacock, and Audrey Hepburn's face.

I'm considering putting this sophisticated portrait of Spottie on a sweater. Thoughts?

I think your MIL's pic would look fandamulous on a sweater too (hehehe)
