Knitting Books

With less time to knit, but more time with books, I've borrowed another stack of knitting books to look at each evening. Here are a few of the one's I've glanced at recently:

Closely Knit (Fettig) - beautiful, thoughtful knitted gifts for loved ones
Fitted Knits (Japel) - very good notes on how to get garments to fit properly
Inspired to Knit (Orne)
The Best of Interweave Knits (Allen & Budd) - beautiful, stunning projects
Knitted Socks (Tillman) - great knits for kids and fun loving adults
The Knitting Workshop (Zimmerman) - a true piece of knitting history
Knitting Without Tears (Zimmerman) - ditto
Sensational Knitted Socks (Schurch) - beautiful socks with awesome stitch pattern guides

Some others that I'm waiting for are:
New Pathways for Sock Knitters (Bordhi)
Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn (Sulkoski)
Knit so Fine (Myers)
Mother-Daughter Knits (Melville)
2-at-a-time Socks (Morgan-Oakes)

One that is not available yet, but will be this year:
Sock Innovation (Cookie A)

And one other that I should add to my personal library:
The Opinionated Knitter (Zimmerman)
