Great Reference Books

These two books are wonderful! They both are smaller-sized and spiral bound which definitely is beneficial so you can hold the book on your lap while holding your knitting in your hands. The Knitter's Companion is made with thicker cardstock paper (definitely a plus) and loaded with quick tips, knitting techniques, different increases/decreases, cast ons, bind offs, yarn requirements, formulas, etc.

The Knitter's Book of Finishing Techniques gives nice instructions on finishing techniques. The photos are in color and Nancy does a great job detailing the reasons to do various finishing techniques.

Both are great resources and I know they will be put to use often and better yet, either one are small enough to fit in your knitting bag just in case you run into a trouble spot!

I just picked up The Knitter's Companion and I love it! It's perfect for throwing in the knitting bag and I like the sturdy cardstock pages.
