My Favorite Pattern Book
My favorite book for knitting patterns is Ann Budd's The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns. The patterns are basic, which makes them a great starting point for one's own embellishments. The best thing about the book is that instructions are given for multiple sizes and gauges. So you can buy whatever yarn you like, knit up a little swatch to get gauge, and you're all set to make one of the following!:
  • socks
    gloves
    mittens
    sweaters
    cardigans
    vests
    hats
    and scarves!
If you buy this book (or any other book) by getting to Amazon from the above link, you will be supporting this site. (I get a small kick-back. Thanks.)

Here are a few pictures of things I've knitted from this book's basic patterns!

My current favorite...
Weekend Knitting... I made 3 pairs of those elf booties for small children on my list. I've made 2 pr of the mitts. Lots of the rest of the patterns are tempting me. I picked it up at my library, but I'll probably have to get myself a copy.

All projects can be done in a day, maybe 2. Nice things, too.
