I need some books

I love to read and I love knitting, but I have only one knitting book. It's not even about knitting alone, it's like an encyclopedia of needlecraft.

Strooper, I likewise think it's awesome that you knit! As was said earlier, knitting used to be an all male practice at one point anyway.

Antares, I remember reading that in a knitting book my mom got me! I'll have to mention that to him next time I see him.
