I admit to having a decent knitting book collection, not huge, but definitely sizable (okay, I'll waddle over to the bookcase to count). Apparently, I have 50 knitting books and 14 booklets (published works by yarn companies created just to feature a particular yarn, such as Rowan's Big Wool or Debbie Bliss' Pure Silk). Is that a lot? So needless to say, I have plenty to consider.
In looking over these books, I have narrowed down my favorites and categorized them.

Books to read: Yes, there are some wonderful knitting books on the market that not only have beautiful patterns to offer the reader, but also, captivating literature on various knitting-related subjects such as the history of specific patterns or the process of yarn from sheep to shelf.
