These entries appear to be from when the site first started! I don't think I've even read back that far. Maybe I should one of these days.

Ingrid, I was on here this morning and decided to go 'way back' and found a few good threads. So thats where this one about the "book" came from. :happydance:
Ahhh yes, this book is the incredible The Principles of Knitting (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0671552333/sr=8-1/qid=1142215166/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-8333216-2618415?%5Fencoding=UTF8). 571 pages long, it's by far the most in-depth how-to book on knitting, a fantastic reference for the person wants to know now just how to do something, but why one way might be better than another, etc. It's a classic, and it's out of print. I've seen it sell for as much as $300 in the holiday season.
Folks pitched in and helped me buy this book to use as a reference for video making. :heart: Isn't it amazing how wonderful folks here are?! :cheering:
Thanks for the walk down memory lane, Celine!
