That's the name of the book I received a few days ago.
If you want a good laugh, if you want some good advice and if you want some inspiration and motivation, then you must read this book by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. There are no patterns as such in this book but a wealth of 'recipes' and information on making just about every basic item of clothing you'd want to make. Stephanie has an amazing sense of humour which really shows through in her writing. I loved this snippet in the glossary ..
"UFO (unfinished object), A project that's incomplete, and proud of it. A UFO is seldom found alone but instead roams the knitter's home in packs. The discovery of one UFO should be regarded as a warning sign that there are many, many more. There are reports of mythic "one thing-at-a-time"knitters but these are only anecdotal.

Not a lot of crochet being done here at the moment - just another mile-a-minute strip to be made into a blanket for Sydney Homeless Connect day which is being supported for Knit4Charities. I'm also working on a baby's blanket for one of my DD's work colleagues and when I'm feeling really brave, I do a few more rounds on a slouch hat I'm knitting and getting fearfully close to when I'll need to transfer from the circs to the scary dpn's ----- my first attempt at anything on such beasts. If it works out ok it will certainly become a ta-dah post. Wish me luck.
