Knitting Book Reviews

I love knitting books and I have a massive collection of books. I have been stumped about what to blog about so I thought I would review a couple of my latest books. Some I like, some I don't. If you are in the market for a new book, maybe it will help you out:

A Most Have:
Socks a' la Carte by Jonelle Raffino and Katherine Cade.

This book is so much fun. It brings you back to the flip books of your childhood..only the authors refer to them as split pages. The first part of the book explans how it works, gives you yarn choices and needle choices as well as some great techniques. Then the fun part: Cuffs, Bodies and Feet ~ thousands of possibilities and a lot of fun choosing the patterns. Here are a couple of pictures.
