One of my many weaknesses are pattern books. I found The seventh little Sublime hand knit book of baby knits at my local knitting shop this past summer. (The link gives you a preview of all the projects in each book complete with yardage requirements.)
The pages are already creased and torn and several projects have resulted in the ownership of this book. In reality I am considering making all six hats, two slippers, seven cardigans/sweaters/smocks, and sampler blanket!
I actually love all of the Sublime hand knit books for babies. As they are somewhat difficult to find in stores I found several place online to purchase them.
