An Absolute must have...

Alright. So you're not exactly a knitting novice. But you're not exactly an expert either. The perks to being an intermediate knitter is that you are at the point where you know you can knit, the hardest part ( learning) is over, and you still maintain an appreciation for harder patterns.One problem the intermediate knitter also commonly comes across is learning yarn and its abilities/attributes/expectations. I myself fall in this intermediate knitter category. I still have major problems with gauge and yarn types. Perhaps it's all because of all the "yarn boom" we've experienced since the 90's. There's just way too many different yarn types to choose from, which can honestly cause some frustration as well as confusion.
So on my quest to find the ultimate yarn book I
have finally, finally, finally found the book of yarn life. It is an absolute must must must. Meet ( and buy at Amazon.com) The Knitters Book of Yarn: The Ultimate Guide to Choosing, Using and Enjoying Yarn (Hardcover).

Wow, thanks! I am an intermediate knitter too. I have seen this book but I haven't bought it yet. Next time I am at the book store, I'll remember to look at this book more closely.
