Knitting for Him/Sweater Workshop books

My LYS project instigator (lookie over here, see what we got, and the yarn too...she even jokingly calls herself the fiber pimp) showed me a new book they are carrying, it's called Knitting for Him.
I like the patterns I'm seeing therin, has anybody else seen it/tried it?

here's a link to the Amazon page for the same book:

I did succumb at my LYS, and purchased the book, plus the yarn to make the Bird's Eye Mitts...she was successful in her sales pitch

Yarn Shop Hop

Well, this weekend was the kickoff for Atlanta's Yarn Shop Hop - visit 10 yarn stores in 10 days, and be entered in a drawing for 1000$ worth of yarn or related paraphenalia, and other prizes.
