I thought this was eppy 9 no?

I am sure you can’t wait to get done with your pinwheel!

I am interested to hear the review on the sock book so I want it (and hope to win it in this contest with some awesome Koigu yarn! *crosses fingers*) But I have flipped thru the Knit Fix book before and always say that I am going to get it! LOL
