Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Sampler Scarf #YarnAlong

Sampler Scarf #YarnAlong


I finished my son's rainbow longies, but they're still wet from lanolizing. Hopefully, I will get a picture of him wearing the completed pants soon.

I would like to get a knitting stitch dictionary book, but I'm not sure which one to buy. I recently borrowed two books from the library:
1. Vogue Knitting Stitchionary Volume One: Knit and Purl
2. Super Stitches Knitting by Karen Hemingway. I am not very impressed with this book. I have noticed a few mistakes in it. Plus, instead of using "yo" for "yarnover", Karen uses "yfwd (or yf)" for "yarn forward, or to the front (knit next stitch)". Meanwhile, my mind is screaming, "JUST WRITE YO!!!!" 

I decided to knit a scarf using various patterns from the two books. This way, I can be sure to get a true picture of both books. So far, I'm leaning towards not getting either book.

What knit stitch dictionary do you recommend?

  1. Sarah, I have and use the Vogue book you have pictured and typically use the internet for stitch pattern inspiration. Have fun! And, yes, YO already!
