Any good books out there?

I have some leftover Christmas money (along with accumulated "mad money") and was thinking about investing in some good knitting books. The Knitting With Balls book sounds like it would be good.

Fair Isle - For My Pa

I'm going down to Florida to visit my parents this weekend. This is the hat I'm taking to give to my Dad. I didn't follow any pattern so I'm not sure I could make anything exactly like this again.

Does anyone have any experience with bamboo fiber. I found some yesterday, which had a really nice texture...I was wondering how it handled/wears.

It don't come easy

I finally recieved my Merino Style yarn from Knitpicks. I bought this yarn because I wanted to knit my next sweater with a finer yarn on smaller needles.
