What books would you love to buy?
I am going to use some birthday-money at Amazon, I would like to buy something useful. The first book I want is Alice Starmore, The celtic collection. I also want to buy Knitting out of Africa by Marianne Isager. And ...?

What would you like to buy?

Iy you have a need for an stitch encyclopedia, look at "Mon Tricot 1500 Pattern Encyclopedia", published in 4 languages by Mon Tricot in 1984. Amazon has used copies in English at $84. It is a superb reference book - B&W and color photographs of stitch patterns, plus a "how-to" knitting encyclopedia.

Of course, anything by Elizabeth Zimmermann is pure gold.

I just got in the mail today "Knitter's Stash" book. Its a beauty!! I was surprised at how big and heavy it is. Has many beautiful projects in it that I plan to make. The first one I'm going to start is the Farmhouse Rug. Its adorable. I even posted for a Knit Along hoping others would join me.
