I buy almost all my books from Amazon, and a lot of other things too, so I'll probably recommend them a lot. Also, if you end up deciding to buy something on Amazon that I recommend, I get a small commission, so please, please, please help me out, and click on the "Buy from amazon.com" links in this blog if you're really interested in buying this stuff.
Now, I plan on buying several books to help me get started on my knitting endeavors. As of right now, I plan on buying Knitting for Dummies, The Knitting Answer Book: Solutions to Every Problem You'll Ever Face, Answers to Every Question You'll Ever Ask, 101 Designer One-Skein Wonders, and Vampire Knits: Projects to Keep You Knitting from Twilight to Dawn. I'm especially excited about Vampire Knits, seeing as Bella's Ruth Cross mittens were what originally inspired me to learn how to knit. They're absolutely beautiful, but if you know how to knit them, you can make about seven pairs for the price she's selling one for, and I just can't see paying $75 for a pair of mittens. Anyway, there's a pattern for similar mittens in Vampire Knits, as well as several other things I'm just dying to make.
Now, if there are any other books you think a beginner knitter should take a look at, please comment below! You can also comment for any other reason, of course. And thank you for reading my blog!
