Cool  I got Twisted Sisters book last year its a heck of a lot to do with Maths, cos Knitting is a very mathmatical hobby/job.  Its a fine book  it encourages you to design your own knitwear or for others using just measurements of people.

I am becoming a big fan of Nicky Epstein, I got her book Knitting on Top of the World and I was speechlessSurprise  The lady is a fab designer, I love that Entrelac wrap/cardi very Parisienne chic.  I can just imagine myself walking down the High street in my sooper chick wrap.  When I knit it up I'll post a few piccies.

Another of my fave books is any books by Yarn Harlot  this woman is a genius when it comes to writing Knitting humour books.  Her books are so funny she has me in 'stitches' I have every one of her books, I even went all the way to London iKnit last year to meet her, it was a magical moment, chatting with a famous person is no big deal she was very natural and funny as her books.

I love my 'Socks made Simple' book its got simple clear instructions and colour coded with a few good sock patterns, its invaluable I knit my first lacy socks with the aid of this book.  I got it from the Knitting and Crochet Guild here in England.  I think the book is aimed at beginners to sock knitting.  I only discovered  sock-knitting 2 years ago with the help of Yarn Harlot.  I showed me Mam my first lacy socks she was suitably impressed she was a great Knitter she taught me a lot about Knitting.

I have a biggish library of knitting books so i got meslef a bookcase cos the books have no place to rest..Yes

I aquired a large number of these vintage pattern books a while ago. They have some really beautiful patterns from dresses, to hats, to some simple and some not-so-simple (but oh so elegant!) jumpers.

I love having a read through them all, and then selecting which one i want to try to make.

Ive never really been good at making jumpers, but if i put my mind to it i think i will do alright (:



Dont take people for granted, beacuse one day you will realise you have lost a diamond while you were too buysing collecting stones....

 I bought the Interweave Favorites Sock book because that is one of my favorite things to knit.  I also like lace and  The Ann Budd pattern books are nice so thinking about those.

I have never gone for books for knitting but now I think its a good idea and it will be very helpful for the beginners to begin with.
