This is the first book I've bought that is by the Yarn Harlot...and I love it!
I couldn't pass up this Sensational Sock book. It has every measurement that I need to fit my goofy feet and the goofy feet of all those that I know (or at least those worth knitting for).
Sensational Knitted Socks
While I have never knitted a toy, I have HIGH hopes. I once bought a Rebecca magazine on eBay just to get a doll pattern. I had checked this book out of the library earlier this year and with a JoAnn's coupon, I snapped one up the other day.

Tired of buying books, I think bought one of the Embellish Knit machines.
I can make my own I-cords but this machine is so much faster. I can make Sophie bag handles in no time with it! I really like the Celtic Knot and Flowers that are made with cords, too. I'm thinking of making a large i-cord flower for my Sophie bag.
And then because I missed buying patterns, I went online and ordered a subscription to Simply Knitting. While it's quite a bit more expensive than U.S. magazines, it is published MONTHLY and inclues a FREE gift. Before subscribing, I had already found issues that included a knitting tote, matching knitting tote accessory bag, and a crochet insert. The first magazine they mailed to me contained bamboo needles!
