      5) NEW BOOKS: Crafty Ideas 2010 by Charlene Shafer

      Charlene says, "Crafty Ideas 2010 is here with lots of new and fun projects to knit. One of my favorite projects is the Mini-Mitts that are mittens with an open end for those that need to use their fingers but keep the hand warm. There is no shaping. Use Tuck and Slip to make stitch size changes. Also try the Ball Cap Ear Band which lets you wear the Ball Cap and the brim slides into a slot in the band which keeps it in place and your ears are toasty warm. Both of these projects are very fast to knit. Lots of easy and fun patterns to choose from."

      Book $18.00 +s/h, Disk $10.00 +s/h (specify Brother/KnitKing or Dak CD)
