The pictures are so inspirational. I keep going back to this book and have checked it out from the library 3 times in 5 years. As I've grown as a knitter, different parts of the book make greater sense.

Decorative, meditative, practical, and rewarding, the time-honored craft of knitting has seen a tremendous renewal or interest recently. These days it seems all the hippest people are knitting their own scarves, sweaters, hats, and socks. This latest addition to our popular Encylcopedia of Art Techniques series includes dozens of designs and techniques for this appealing and practical craft, with clear step-by-step instructions and an A-to-Z format for easy reference.

This was the book that started off the obsession with knitting books! It's a little dated now and, to be honest, there are better books to teach you how to knit. However, it's perfectly serviceable (I taught myself a lot using it) and its a great reference of stitches for medium - advanced knitters. When designing my own patterns this is one I come back to time and again.
I much prefer Vogue Knitting to this one. It has at least as many stitches (if not more) and so much more information. I found the "inspirational gallery" to be quite out-dated and uninteresting. I also found a lot of descriptions confusing. I'd skip this one and just get vogue knitting. It has all the info in this and more and with better presentation.
