"Boobie" Scarf by Allaya Diep
Have any of you seen the Boobie Scarf from Knitty.com? It's in the special additional patterns PDF that was released a few days ago. I don't know how practical it is, but I was very impressed with the creativity that went into knitting boobs out of yarn! Allaya

"Heirloom Knitting" @ Amazon by Wooly
Amazon claims to have Sharon Miller's "Heirloom Knitting" for $36 with free shipping if you choose "slow boat via Australia and points south" shipping option. I just ordered, we'll see if it shows up or if they string me along for three months before admitting they don't have it at that price.
