best technique books?
are vogue's the best?
I have montse stanley's, the knitting answer book, and the knitter's book of finishing techniques, and lots of notes from elizabeth zimmermann and annie modesitt, but I clearly need more help.

(I mean especially for general nitpicking technical stuff, not cables or fair isle or anything that complicated.)

I'm looking for the kind of book that tells you if there is anything that can be done when you have picked up the stupid collar stitches one too many times in the neck of your stupid sweater and they are all stretched beyond looking at and it's still wrong, or whether you should just resign yourself to burning it and give up forever...
is that in there?
