Hi all,

I got two Nicky Epstein Books for Christmas, Knitting On the Edge and Knitting Over the Edge.

today I just got 'Itty Bitty Hats - Susan B. Anderson' and 'One-Skein Wonders - Judith Durant'

I want to order 'Sensational Knitted Socks' but when I do I would add another book or two to the shipping...

Is there a book that you would reccomend having as a reference to knitting? Or something else that is a "must have"? In terms of what I want to knit/like to knit.... A book with great baby/kid stuff in it or a book with Felted items or one with home decor type things would be cool too.

Thanks for your suggestions!

Cara

This is the resource I consult most often, by far.

Oh, if you get that one, you might want to look for a first edition used copy (I got mine from an amazon seller for about $5 shipped). It's almost identical to the current one, and you'll save a bunch of $ that you can spend on something else.

I have "The Knitting Encyclopedia" and "Knitting for Dummies" I kind of like the knitting for dummies, but the encyclopedia has more photos.

ditto~~ Very helpful and informative
and also IMHO Stitch N Bitch was very helpful as a very new novice knitter because it broke everything WAY down so I could understand!!
