I am looking for authors to add to my collection of knitting books for baby/toddler. My favorite authors are: Debbie Bliss, Zoe Mellor, Lois Daykin, Family Circle and Katia Publications. Any ideas for good quality yarn for baby and the best web sites for patterns. Thank you, diane:knitting:

Susan Anderson's books are lovely: Itty Bitty Hats and Itty Bitty Nursery. I think that she's coming out with another, though.

Here is a free (http://www.allaboutyou.com/craft/Knitting-pattern-ribbon-tied-baby-jacket/v1) Debbie Bliss Sweater Pattern. I'm also going to be doing this as an 8 week class with my online knitting class (http://www.forums.thefuzzylamb.com/viewforum.php?f=41).

I love Debbie Bliss, too, but my other recommendation would be for The Yarn Girls. Their book, "The Yarn Girls Guide to Kid Knits" is full of cute things that are relatively easy to knit -- lots of adorable sweaters, especially. And as the little ones grow, they've got a book of patterns for bigger kids.
