Best Knitting Reference Books

Best Knitting Reference Books is a listing of my go-to books. Some are small enough for my knitting bag.  No matter how long a person has been knitting, sometimes your mind draws a blank.  That is where these books have saved me more than once.  For me, it is impossible to remember how to do the many stitches that knitting has to offer.

Pasta Fazool (Pasta e Fagioli) with Taco Meat or Not

Pasta Fazool is an Italian soup with beans and pasta.  Some cooks prepare it plain or with sausage.  Since we had some leftover taco meat, my soup took on a Mexican flare. With or without meat, this soup makes a great lunch or dinner appetizer.

          Yarn Weight – What does it mean?

          No, yarn weight isn't referring to how much a ball, skein, or hank weighs.  In this case, yarn weight refers to the thickness of the yarn. As a beginner knitter or crocheter, one of the most challenging things to figure out is what is a yarn weight, and what does it mean.
