does anyone know...?

...of a good book to help you design your own knitwear??? I have seen 'the sweater workshop' mentioned in a couple of blogs, but looking at amazon it appears to be more about knitting in the round. I'm not adverse to it (i kinda like it) but would like to have a few options up my sleeve :) Anyone have this / seen this and able to recommend it? Or seen any other books they could recommend? I'm a fan of browsing through books before I buy but there aren't alot of specialist books available here.

Here's Pierre crashed out on the couch. Puppy pre-school tonight - hope his star status continues :)

I'm a big fan of the Sweater Workshop, but it really does just talk about knitting in the round. If you want to make seamless raglan sweaters with your own designs on them, that's the one you want. It doesn't have very many other styles though, so if you're looking for an all-around design book, you may want something else. (I've got one called "Sweater Design in Plain English" that I like, but it's really wordy and I haven't had a chance to delve into it very deeply.)
