Embroidery techniques?
I've found a few how to's for embrodiery online but, I want more! I'm so addicted to the fantastic outcome. I can make stars and flowers. Any idea where I can look for more how to's?
Thanks!

Look for a book called "Knitting Plus" by Montse Stanley. It's an encyclopedia of ideas for embroidering on knitwear -- not just a few little motifs, but how to change the whole look of a fabric with allover embroidery techniques. You can even use these ideas to improve a boring store-bought sweater.

If you're not that into embroidery, Nicky Epstein's "Knitted Embellishments" has a useful chapter on duplicate stitch and other embroidery stitches, plus a ton of other ideas for decorating knits.
