is paved with good intentions.
So many people wrote to ask for more details about the fabulous book I posted about in the last entry--Knitting Patterns Book 250--that I decided to get more information and answer in a follow-up post. Yeah. Sorry. Here's what I can tell you for sure:
- Paperback 127 pages
- 250 charted knitting patterns: 206 cable or cable+yarnover patterns--some of these are actually two or three patterns in one; 29 hems or edgings; 15 panels incorporating several patterns; photos of 6 sweaters that incorporate the patterns (but no directions for the sweaters themselves)
- An excellent visual representation of how to knit the charted symbols
I purchased my copy for $33.60 at Kinokuniya Bookstore in Seattle. There were several copies at that location when I found mine last weekend.
For those interested in Japanese craft books, check out this drool-inducing site: Crafting Japanese. As you look through the site, you will find instructions for ordering from Amazon Japan as well as links to other sellers of knitting books in Japanese. While clicking on links of related books I discovered several more stitch pattern dictionaries: Knitting Patterns Book 1000, 100, 300, 200, along with crochet pattern books.
No, I did NOT pull out my credit card!
