The only knitting book I own is a little How To leaflet with stitches and abbreviations. I have always relied on KH and Knitting Pattern Central for patterns. Well, I got some great sock yarn for Christmas and I have decided it's time to branch away from ribbed boot socks with size 4 needles and wool-ease. Anyway I bought Ann Budd's Knitting Socks !! I'm so excited I bought a knitting book. I think I'm going to do the Chevron socks.
So much for cleaning the house with my day off !!
Congrats! I love knitting books. I think it's a combination of love of books and love of knitting. I generally use Ravelry for my free patterns, but I still love knitting books as references and for patterns that aren't free. I don't think there's such a thing as too many knitting books- so keep expanding your library!
OTN: Corona, Miter square blanket, Charity blankets
FO: Forest Canopy Shawl, Easy Baby Bootees, Kitty Pi, Ms. Marigold, Twinkle Toes, Josh's socks, Hedera socks, Spring Beret, Ashley's Birthday socks, Socks for the DBF's mom, grey socks for the DBF, my first socks, reversible cable scarf, ribbed hat for the BF, Manos Del Uruguay afghan, and a whole bunch of dishcloths!
Oh goodness - don't tell the hubby its a slippery slope !! I have a hard enough time justifying my yarn stash... We have about a million reading books already.
I should mention I have been knitting for almost 10yrs from free patterns or books from the library.
