Hi all,

I would love to branch into this (expanding my knitting skillz and all that) and I would like a good book recommendation on how to learn this. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I'm sure you checked out the tutorial here. I looked at it and it's helping me do my first fair isle project: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/vi..._id=24&lang=en

It's actually not too difficult. In fact, I'd say it was fun.

I'm also interested in getting that Stitchionary volume. I only have the first volume, but would like the second two.
