Hooky Booky

Do you have a favourite knitting/crochet reference book?

Do you have any of the following?

Would you recommend them to someone that does not have a knitting/crochet reference book and would like something that is a reference guide to lots and lots of stitches from blocky stitches, to twirly stitches to delicate lacy/open stitches?

Or do you have another hooky reference book that you could not live without and would like to share?

I have been working very hard on my assignments and I am sure it is time for a little reward of the hooky kind.   

Also on my wish list are some motif and edging books, along with flower books, but these will be the reward at the completion of my course.  I call them my little carrots.

Thanks so much for your lovely thoughts and comments on our loss of Bin Lizzy.  I did feel a little silly blogging about it, but then it is my blog at the end of the day, and people have a choice whether they read it or not.  I didn't start my blog to 'get the most readers', I started my blog for me.  Surprisingly, I never so much as dreamt to have met so many wonderful new friends.  So thank you.

Thank you also, for stopping by my place today.

Have a wonderful Sunday at your place.

Oh poor little bin Lizzie! What a sweet little thing she was. I hate finding animals that haven't made it due to other animals. Birds are a real sore point for me.

I haven't got any of these but I certainly could do with one, I have photocopies and notes strewn all over the place.
I do have '100 flowers to knit and crochet' which is lovely and fairly easy to follow, it's by Lesley Stanfield - when you're ready for your 'carrot' (which by the way you can knit from a pattern in the book!)

Maybe you will review the one you get? I'm sure we'd all like to hear about it!

i have the reader's digest one on the far left. i haven't compared it to others so i don't know how good it is compared to what else is out there, but it does have tons of stitches, including motifs and edgings so it might be what you're looking for.

happy autumn! ;-)

oh thank you, I still have not decided which book to get and might just have to get two of them. (slap wrist here) Have a wonderful weekend at your place.
