I'm thinking about investing in a stitch dictionary set and I'm curious if anyone has an opinion on which is better: the Vogue Stitchionary series or the Harmony Guides? Both claim to be the definitive stitch dictionary...
The cost difference is only about $4, so that's not a big factor. I guess what I'm interested in are opinions about readability and variety/usefulness of the stitch patterns. (Usefulness: I don't really need a whole bunch of crazy elaborate stitch patterns I will probably never use, but I'd like to have more patterns that I can get in my general knitting reference books and on freebie sites online.)
In terms of knitting magazines, I prefer Interweave Knits to Vogue, but I don't know if this makes much of a difference here. Maybe it does?
All insight is much appreciated!
Also, does anyone have an opinion on investing in a set vs. just buying a single all-in-one stitchionary?
What I'd use it for: I don't really design a lot of my own patterns but I like to swatch out different stitches just to learn something new and hone my skills, maybe make a scarf or pillow and test out a new yarn. But who knows what the future holds?
