Just Curious -- How many knitting and crocheting books do you own? Which ones are your favorite?

I have just spent part of my morning organizing my knitting and crocheting books, which basically means going around the house collecting them and putting them back into the bookshelves.

Since I felt rather ambitious, I decided to next make an alphabetic list of the books that I currently own. And I was rewarded with some very pleasant surprises since several of the books I had totally forgotten about.

I was also surprised to discovered that I currently have 48 books on knitting/crocheting patterns and stitches. This made me wonder...how many books on knitting & crocheting do you have? I would be curious to know which of your books are favorites.

Here is my book list:

My current favorite is Folk Vests, 25 knit patterns by Cheryl Oberle.

Oh my goodness, I just found a few more. I guess my list is a work in progress.

I hope so. I only had a chance to flip through it at the store. The proof will be in the pudding.....when I actually refer to it to hone my almost non-existent knitting skills. I do know how to do a long tail cast on and can perform basic knit and purl functions; but I get confused easily. All I've ever knitted are practice swatches ... and they confound me!

The book contains (among the basic how-tos, and a few patterns etc) colour photos and instructions for 200 stitch patterns, which are way beyond my (non) skill level ... but hope springs eternal and I may learn how to knit - and come to enjoy it - yet! So far, every attempt has been an exercise in frustration .... so I end up tossing aside the knitting needles in favour of my crochet hook. 馃尲
Thank you for your response! :D Elation

You鈥檝e probably hidden that section. Look under your avatar, settings, preferences. If the members buy sell trade is checked, you should uncheck it, save at the bottom of the page and the next time it updates (the system seems to update at ten minutes before the hour), you should be able to click on the link without getting the 鈥渙ops鈥.
