Where can I find info on how to embroider/embellish on knits?
:::sigh::: I made the great american aran knit Susan Rainey sweater square. LOL....as directed I first knit the square and struggled through the little sweater. By the way :::arrrggghhh ::: to the berry stitch. Welllll guess what, the square is 2" too small for the little sweater. So I tore apart the knit square and calculated what I needed to do to make it 2" bigger. Wellll....LOL...now it is 2 " too big! So I've decided I am going to embellish the square after applying the sweater to it. In the end I think it will look fabulous. But I'm having a hard time locating sites where I can find ideas on how to embroider/ embellish knits. Could someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance

My favorite book on embellishing knits is this one.
http://www.amazon.com/DECORATIVE-KNI...2791473&sr=1-3

My favorite book specifically on embroidering knits is "Knitting Plus" by Montse Stanley, and long out of print, but Amazon.com has some used copies for a dollar or two. Worth every cent!

Thanks MsB for asking this question, and thanks for the recommendations. I ordered Knitting Plus by Montse Stanley and Decorative Knitting from Amazon, because I would love to embellish my knits with embroidery, but haven't had a good resource for techniques used specifically with knitting.
