So I mentionned in my last post that I had some new books to talk about, well here they are.
On top of the great Knit Picks yarn that my mom got me for my birthday, she also got me Cookie A's Knit.Sock.Love book! I've been coveting it for a while so I couldn't be happier. I'm trying not to buy books anymore because I have tons of them and I've made it my personal mission to knit from them as much as possible. I'm currently trying to knit my way through Sock Innovation (though both of my current socks aren't from that book, but I'll get back to it as soon as they're done).
Anyways, I think I want to knit every sock in Knit.Sock.Love except for the German Stockings because I down do knee socks.
A friend of mine also gave me two great books. One is Classic Elite Quick Knits. It has lots of socks and hats and mittens (and other things), including some patterns by Jared Flood.
The other book is Socktopus, by Alice Yu. It has 17 patterns, including some that will work well with variegated yarn. I seriously like them all.
So yeah, I could knit only from those three books for the next decade and be happy. :)
Sorry about the lack of pics in this post, but I promise some great yarn porn in the next!
