Books

I got a $20 gift certificate from my Secret Pal for amazon.com. I really need yarn, but they only have what is offerred via joann.com. Nothing is really popping out at me for tank tops. I wish I had waited on all those needles!

Anyway, I have these books below (from memory, so its pretty muddy). How should I round out my collection? Keep in mind I don't want to go too over my budget since I'll have to pay s/h and that stuff unless I make it over $25, which is still $5 over anyway.

Stitch 'N Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook
Stitch 'n Bitch Nation
Last-Minute Knitted Gifts
Weekend Knitting
Knit Wit
365 Knitting Stitches a Year Perpetual Calendar
The Knitter's Companion (The Companion Series)
The Knitting Goddess

I have both Knitting On The Edge and Knitting in Plain English if you want to take a look. I like Knitting On The Edge, not impressed with Knitting In Plain English.

I'm definetly buying Knitting on the Edge at some point, I flipped through it again on Saturday and its a good book.

I'd say Knitting Without Tears. Every knitter has got to have an Elizabeth Zimmerman book, right? I have it, and I'm ashamed to say I haven't read it yet.

Here's my 2 cents:
Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles
(I've heard don't bother - I got info from my swap partner on 2 socks on 2 circs I can bring in)
Knitting on the Edge (just looked at it the other day - very cool!)
Charted Knitting Designs: A Third Treasury of Knitting Patterns (Damn $30 - worth it, it's HUGE)
Knitting Without Tears (I have, you are welcome to borrow and review)
Knitting in Plain English (heard it wasn't so good)
