I love all of the things that you could make.

This was just fun to look through. I have a lot of knitting projects on my "to-do" list, which now includes a few of these patterns. (Firefly inspired Jayne scarf, little tribbles, etc.)

I'm not a knitter so I can't comment on the patterns. I had borrowed this mostly to see what the actual knitwear would look like: sheer curiosity on my part. Some of the things look very nice, others don't seem quite practical. I want the ST NextGen sweater...
