The pattern I liked is called Jersey Turnpike. It reminds me of an old Simon & Garfunkel song that has lyrics about "countin the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike". Yeah, I'm nearly a geezer and am easily entertained. I wasn't familiar with the other designers in the book, so maybe I'll be getting some more new favorites.
What I need is a new rule: knit at least one pair from at least one book I already have before I go ordering any more books!
