Last year, after pouting about the fact that I did not have near enough money to join a Sock of the Month Club, I did a Sock of the Month thing of my own, wherein I took all the sock yarn in my stash and paired it with all the sock patterns I was dying to knit, stuck them each in a ziplock bag and pulled one each month for a year. This brilliant and satisfying idea I totally stole from The Yarn Harlot, bless her. This year I was going to use the same idea and apply it to mittens, so much it is that I am in love with them, but alas, I cannot stop knitting socks. It’s like a sickness. I. Can’t. Stop. I am easing up a bit, so I’ve given myself permission to knit a pair of socks over 2 months instead of one. Amazing, aren’t I?

Question: What is your favorite Knit Stitch Encyclopedia?
I am seriously looking to buy one. (or two) I had two of them years ago. Back when I 1st began knitting and the only thing I was knitting were hats in the round, I inherited a bunch of old looking knitting stuff from a friend and I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why I needed TWO books of assorted knitting stitches. I dumped them. Totally stupid, I know. Now I want to find a great one and invest whatever it takes. Any suggestions?
