What's your favorite stitch dictionary, folks? I need to add one to my wish list.

Looking for something with pictures, lots of variety, etc.

I was going to suggest that one too...I haven't used it a lot yet, but now that I'm itching to do some sweaters, I think I might.

The calendar http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1564774325/qid=1128353932/sr=8-1/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-0321464-9412027?v=glance&s=books&n=507846 is worth the $$$. :thumbsup:

I was doing 4"x4" blocks to make an afghan but have too many other projects now to keep up with it. :(

Here is something else I came across http://www.knittingknonsense.com/calendarmultiples.html

I just bought two of the Barbara Walker stitch treasuries, which are back in print again through Schoolhouse Press. Treasury #1 contains over 500 stitches, and Treasury #2 over 700, all different than the ones in the first book. You can buy them at Knitpicks for $27 each, dirt cheap! She has many other books out as well, but these are great as far as stitch encyclopedias go.

Due to overwhelming response, the calander it is! Thanks everyone!

Oh, yeah...I borrows a B Walker Treasury from the library once....they are VERY good. I think one of her books is all charts and the others are all text instructions.
