Knitters are a generous bunch.
My knitting buddy, Jana, just told me that Laura Aylor is giving us all a free pattern to celebrate her birthday. Happy Birthday, Laura! You can get any pattern/ebook for free through Ravelry by entering the coupon code HAPPYBDAY at checkout. You have from January 11-January 14, 2013. (By the way, Laura is the designer of that famous afghan, Lizard Ridge, from the Fall 2006 Knitty.)
I had a very difficult time choosing a pattern, then noticed that I'd already queued this one back in September:
