How can you not love a knitting book that includes a tattoo chart?

Son of Stitch 'n Bitch is another addition to the cowgirl-emblazoned family of books that all started back in 2003 with Stitch 'n Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook. One thing is clear. Debbie Stoller is a force to be reckoned with.

One of the best things about Stitch 'n Bitch books is their breadth. Stoller crams in 45 projects, a chapter about knitting for men that explains the boyfriend curse, a resource guide and references into just over 200 pages.

Stoller achieves this, in part, by enlisting other designers for many of these patterns. In fact, you could use this book as a starting point for finding new-to-you designers to check out.

There are few men in my life who deserve my knitting, but, for the ones that do, I'm considering trying a few of those 45. And, to be honest, most of these designs would look cute on a woman, too, if adjustments were made for sizing and fit.
