Okay so it took all of about 30 seconds to decide, because apart from the gorgeous bag Miss Jones made me for my crochet to go in, the rest of my yarny essentials really truly need sorting out. I think maybe their blog posts could inspire me to do this once the holidays have finished!
So...crafty books in my collection. I grabbed them off of the book shelves and photographed them into categories; knitting, crochet, dressmaking and general crafting. Here's what decorates my shelves and inspires me...

I have to admit, I also get a lot of craft books out of the library as all-to-often I have ordered a book only to find I don't want to make very much from it at all. Getting the book from the library serves as a good way for me to decide if I actually want it.
However, despite having all of these books, plus a subscription to Mollie Makes magazine (I have every issue!) I tend to get most of my inspiration in blogland. Boy there are some very talented people out there and more often than not, I am left longing for the talents that they possess. But as someone recently reminded me, I can only be myself, everyone else is already taken.
What's on your bookshelf?!
