As noted in an email I received from Loop Yarns in the South Loop:
"Amy Singer (author, pattern writer, editor, and founder
of knitty.com) will be at Loopy Yarns on Wednesday,
April 4th from 5:30 to 7:30! Please come meet her,
learn from her, and get a book signed by her. Her most
recent book is No Sheep for You (patterns designed for
yarns without wool). Amy also co-wrote Big Girl Knits."
Amy's new book is getting rave reviews. I have a copy of Big Girl
Knits and find it a great resource.
