Looking for a good knitting book
I have a 25.00 gift card at barnes and noble, and am wanting to get a knitting book of some sort. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm thinking a technique book. I forgot to put that in my first post.

I like "Knitting without tears" by Elizabeth Zimmermann

I don't know if it's still in print.
It was the first book my grandmother gave to me when I started long, long long time ago.......

http://search.barnesandnoble.com/boo...+without+tears

Here is the link...the cover is updated but it looks the same....good luck

Reader's Digest Knitter's Handbook ~Montse Stanley~

I refer to this book ALOT.

GOOD BOOK TO HAVE.
