punkmom cleverly suggested that I ask my knitting friends if y'all have any of the books I was ranting about not being able to see online. Here is my current list and if you have opinions on any of these, or if you are local and have a copy that I could look at, please let me know:

Wrap Style: Innovative to Traditional, 24 Inspirational Shawls, Ponchos, and Capelets to Knit and Crochet by Pam Allen, Ann Budd

I like this wrap from it and either don't like or can't tell whether I like (Green Sleeves) the other wraps shown on the Interweave site (here and here). I like this but it's available for free. I want to know if there are any others I like, because I would rather not pay $22 for one pattern.

I find myself wanting to play around with cable and celtic knot stitches so I would also like to have a look at these:

Aran Sweater Design by Janet Szabo

I have these on hold at the library:

220 Aran stitches : includes diamonds, cables, twists, honeycombs, textures, panels, backgrounds

Aran knitting, Alice Starmore

Vogue knitting stitchionary 2. Vol. 2, cables : the ultimate stitch dictionary

Michael Pearson's Traditional knitting : Aran, Fair Isle, and fisher ganseys

Finally, if you have any opinions about the books in my Amazon yarncrafts wishlist I would welcome them. (ObDisclaimer: I am not trolling for gifts; this is just a convenient place to keep track of stuff I want to check out.)

If you're interested in cables and knotwork, you should add Elsebeth Lavold's book to your "check out" list. I don't know if the sweater styles would be to your taste (I think some of them are stunning, some of them are WTF), and they don't go up to your size if I understand correctly. But the knotwork patterns themselves are lovely and might make the book worthwhile for you.

(I have the Swedish version).

Thank you! I'm primarily interested in the patterns.
