I love Loop-d-Loop. I haven't actually knit anything out of it yet, but just leafing through it is inspirational!

My personal #1 book out of the ones you posted is Scarfstyle. simply because I've knit more out of it then I have any other book I own. I'm currently knitting Backyard leaves. Well actually, it's currently waiting for the replacement needle from Brittany to get here so I can finish it. Mine snapped. :(
