knitopedia

knit•o•pe•dia (2011)
1. an alphabetical listing of every knitting term, technique, tool, designer, fiber or tradition one can imagine 2. a beautifully illustrated book that is a must-have for any knitting library
This book really contains absolutely everything one would need or want to know about knitting. With five years in the making, Vogue Knitting truly left nothing out.

And, you guessed it, Tara over at sixth & spring books would like to share this book with two of you. If interested, please leave a comment by Sunday, March 6th, 11pm EST and I will have the random generator choose a couple of names.
