First, I have to say I love this site, think it's a marvelous idea and yippee to you for setting it up! Secondly, there's an awesome pattern in this issue of Craft: Magazine (issue 06), put out by the people of www.craftzine.com. The pattern is of a knitted chicken/egg, both toys in one. First it's an egg, then you flip it inside out and it becomes a little yellow chick. Isn't that brilliant? It would probably go great with this book.
