Young knitters, old knitters, hip knitters, traditional knitters: they all enjoy different styles. But every knitter from age 5 to 95 needs a good dictionary of stitches.  400 Knitting Stitches is a comprehensive guide that invites knitters to experiment with a variety of new stitch combinations. The book is conveniently divided into eight categories: knit-purl, crossed and cables, slipped, lacy,double, twisted, cast-off, and fancy stitches.  Making a romantic lacy wrap or a classic cable sweater? Whatever your style, there's a stitch in here for you. 
 
Each of the 400-plus featured stitches is accompanied by easy-to-follow written and charted instructions,as well as a full-color photograph. A section on basic knitting information and techniques at the front of the book makes this volume even more invaluable. 

From advanced knitters experimenting with their own designs to beginners looking for clear instruction and explanation, 400 Knitting Stitches is an essential reference for knitters of all kinds.

Above is a quote from the inside cover of the book 400 knitting stitches. The kind of book that keeps me awake at night dreaming of possibilities. Does that make me strange? If so I can live with the label. I tend to collect stitch dictionaries because each of them have a unique perspective even though it is all knits and pearls.

This book was one of the things I got while shopping on my birthday way back in June. Remember on Monday I told you about how I do things, go places, take pictures and don't get posts written? Well this is one post towards not doing that so much any more.
