View Full Version : Bought my first knitting book !

The only knitting book I own is a little How To leaflet with stitches and abbreviations. I have always relied on KH and Knitting Pattern Central for patterns. Well, I got some great sock yarn for Christmas and I have decided it's time to branch away from ribbed boot socks with size 4 needles and wool-ease. Anyway I bought Ann Budd's Knitting Socks !! I'm so excited I bought a knitting book. I think I'm going to do the Chevron socks.
So much for cleaning the house with my day off !!

Congrats! I love knitting books. I think it's a combination of love of books and love of knitting. I generally use Ravelry for my free patterns, but I still love knitting books as references and for patterns that aren't free. I don't think there's such a thing as too many knitting books- so keep expanding your library!

Oh goodness - don't tell the hubby its a slippery slope !! I have a hard enough time justifying my yarn stash... We have about a million reading books already.
I should mention I have been knitting for almost 10yrs from free patterns or books from the library.
