Did you ever get a library book and want to rush right down to the library and tell them you lost it and pay for it so you could keep it FOREVER??
[size=2][/size][color=red][/color][color=red][size=2]and i am a librarian [/size][/color]:oops:
We have an amazing public library system. I can search the on line catalog, find a book, click and they deliver it right to my front door. I can even renew it on line and when I am finished just drop it off at the nearest branch. Because of this system, I am sure the librarians have had to dig into the deepest depths of some shelves for some pretty old knitting books, because I check them ALL out, just to “see”.
Anyway … the main thing I want to learn this year is to knit with color, especially fair isle. Yesterday I got these three books copyright in the 1980’s. All three of them have a ton of information and patterns.
“The Complete Book fo Traditional Fair Isle Knitting” by Sheila McGregor
"Michael Pearson’s Traditional Knitting - Aran, Fair Isle and Fisher Ganseys"
“New Directions in Fair Isle Knitting” by Patty Knox
Actually, I will search Amazon.com and purchase them used :angelgrin: … but they would be [size=6]mine[/size] so much quicker if I could keep these …
