I want to request the best knitting reference book i can for my Christmas present, but i have no idea what that would be. Could i get some recommendations? What book has proved an invaluable help in knitting dilemmas or with knitting questions, and has carried you through your various knitting stages? or is this too much to ask from a single book?
Also, i want to buy some yarn online, but my DH is very skeptical of the quality of yarn bought online. I've looked at YarnPicks and Elann, and they seem to be quality yarns. Can those who have knit with yarn purchased from these sites -or others- give me some sort of quality grade? like, "Grade A - best yarn i've ever knit with!" or something like that. I told him the sites must be good quality since they're advertised on this site, but that doesn't seem to make much difference. non-knitter...
thanks for the help! :muah:
