    Default Knitting books I love.....

    Between these two books:

    'the knitters handy book of sweater patterns' (the title is all in lower case), by Ann Budd

    'The Knitting Stitch Bible', by Maria Parry-Jones

    I can make just about any sweater for someone (or me!) in any size or with any stitch or cable or jacquard pattern I want. I love them!

    Dd and I have this book on our want list. We've been eyeing it at Michael's for quite some time.

    I need to check out the first book you mentioned.

    I personally love and recommend anything by Barbara Walker. Her knitting treasuries series are the most extensive stitch encyclopedias ever written. I think she invented mosaic knitting and her book of mosaic patterns is as amazing as the treasuries. I also have her Knitting From the Top Down book and her Learn to Knit an Afghan book.
