Let's hear it for the boys!

I know when I go through patterns, I gravitate towards the girly stuff.  I admit to getting wrapped in the super cuteness that is ruffles and bows... but now, there is a knitting pattern book devoted to the awesomeness that is our little boys!!

"Knits for Boys" is a delightfully designed creation from Kate Oates.  This girl knows what a boy wants - every pattern in here is perfect for your wee man.  Seriously, everything you can think of making him is found between these covers.  Shorts, long johns, bow ties (because bow ties are cool), socks, hats and mitts, and yes there are plenty of sweaters too.

Just take a look at some of the scrumptious designs, graciously title "grow with me projects" because they are all 'tweakable' so you can make the exact size you need to cover their growth spurts - and we all know how quickly they grow on us, don't we...
With all of the wonderful designs - from casual to classic - your little man will be dashing.
With bright photos, simple schematics, and detailed instructions, there is no way to fail!
