Confessions of a Knitting Heretic by Annie Modesitt
I quite enjoyed this book--but then, as a Combination knitter myself, I was sure I would. I really liked what she had to say about knitting. I agree with her thoughts on being an adventurous knitter and on letting people understand their options and decide for themselves. There's also a lot of good information on knitting techniques, including basics like casting on and more complicated things like colorwork. I enjoyed the personal essays as well. Not all of the patterns are my style and I have no interest at this point in knitting with wire, but I definitely want to do that plaid bag at some point.
