It's my bible of knitting ... anyone else share their fav. knitting bible?
I've never seen that one David. Maybe my public library has a copy I can take a look at.

My knitting bible would have to be "Portuguese Style of Knitting: History, Traditions, and Techniques," by Andrea Wong.

Since the style is so different, figuring out how to work something as simple as a SSK, or knitting through the back loop was a
challenge for me.

But they're all laid out in that book. For me it's the only must have in my knitting library.

How's that hoodie going?
