I realised that I completely forgot to tell you about a new knitting book that I bought after Christmas. It was in the sales, and I probably wouldn't have picked it up had it not been for the fact that it was only 50p *laughs*
The Knitter's Guide to Yarn Cocktails.
If I'm honest, I was most drawn to it by the picture on the cover, and the price ;) The book is slightly strange, with all the patterns named after cocktails - most of which don't bear any resemblance to the pattern or even the colour of the yarn used. But it is a bit of (cheap) fun, especially the slightly bizarre pattern descriptions!
There are a couple of patterns that I may consider making at some point. And there are a few that are, quite frankly, terrifying:
The Banana Boat Men's Boxers, for example.
Funnily enough, boyfriend has requested that I do not, ever, under any circumstances, make these for him *laughs*
