I was in my LYS (Balls & Skeins in Sebastopol, CA) the other day; and, in addition to buying more Manos del Uruguay wool yarn, I was poking through their book stacks, looking for a good knitting reference book. There is a lot of good stuff on the internet, and I have been using that often; but, call me a old-fashion - I like books. There was one work there that I considered buying called, "Vogue Knitting," and it was recommended by the sales lady. Generally, I'm not going to part with $40.00 that quickly, so I'm asking you all for referrals to previous forum threads dealing with this topic or to your favorite knitting reference books.
