Knitting Library

Julie tagged... well everyone with this meme (originated by Rae).

1. What is your favorite pattern book? I love Last Minute Knitted Gifts because it has such a diverse range of projects for men, women, babies, teens, and anyone else you could possibly want to knit for.

2. What is your favorite technique book? Believe it or not, Stitch -n- Bitch. I am always referring to this book for a technique I have forgotton, or want to make sure I am doing right. I don't own any of the really "techy" books but I really want to own Knitting Technology, and it's been on my wish list for a while.

3. What classic technique book should every knitter own? Again, I don't buy many technical knitting books, but for designing, there is lots of good information in Designing Knitwear.

4. How many knitting books do you typically buy in a year? Like Julie, I find this question a little scary (especially since I am on a yarn diet). I probably buy 1-2 per month... maybe 3 some months. But I think I am saturated to where I don't need to buy every new good one that comes out. The reason is because if it's a good book, but I have similar patterns in another book, I won't buy it (at least not until I am really needing to buy one). Everytime a new book comes out and I realize it's one more that I don't have to own, I am very happy. That said, I bought both The Natural Knitter and Knitting Around within the last two weeks.

LMKG is one of my faves, too, and I'm with you on buying new books...I feel like I've seen just about everything in some way, shape or form. Still, I have Interweave's Favorite Socks on my wishlist. I can never get enough of socks.
