OK--if I could order 3 knitting books, and one especially about socks, what would you suggest I buy??? I'm looking at Overstocks huge listing about knitting books...and I'm pondering.... :?? :XX:

"365 Days of Knitting Perpetual Calendar" DEFINITELY!

And, maybe Cat Bordhi's book...."Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles"?

Thanx ya'll!! I haven't tried socks on circs--have you?? Is it really easier? I kinda like knitting with 4 needles though--it confounds everyone in the doctor's office when I knit socks there!! And it's kinda cool confounding people, ya know?? :lol: :XX:

Yes. Yes it is. When I knit socks in class people are like "What the heck?!"

:roflhard: :roflhard: Now I will have to learn to make socks and use DPNs. Causing quizzical countenances is quite comical. :roflhard: :roflhard:

2 socks on 2 circs will be my next sock project...but I am using the resource from here (http://www.socknitters.com/2circs/index.htm) for it! Sock books...My very fave is Socks Socks Socks (http://www.knitpicks.com/books/books_display.aspx?itemid=30580) and another one that I've not gotten, but I understand is very, very good is Sensational Knitted Socks (http://www.knitpicks.com/books/books_display.aspx?itemid=30656)
A wonderful book with several patterns for all sizes with all different yarn sizes & gauges is The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns (http://www.knitpicks.com/books/books_display.aspx?itemid=30031)
One of my very favorite books is Scarf Style (http://www.knitpicks.com/books/books_display.aspx?itemid=30529)
The Knitter's Bible (http://www.knitpicks.com/books/books_display.aspx?itemid=30572) is an invaluable reference book and on sale @ knitpicks!
I can think of several more...but this is a good start ;)
