Oh hi - I have a bonny book I bought some years back. When I run into a quandry, this book is a gem:
"The Knitter's Bible" Claire Crompton. Take a peek on Amazon:

copy and paste the link, Lass, unless you want to just key in the title in amazon.

"Sleep knits up the Raveled Sleave of Care" . . W. Shakespeare
"For those of us with true Understanding, Music is the only pure Art Form" .... Schultz

I just found this today: It's the Walker Treasury Project. Many of the Walker treasuries don't have very big pics of the stitches, and they've started a blog to post larger pics and samples, which can be really useful. You have to have the books because they don't give the patterns, just a pic. This could give you a pretty good idea of whether you want the books themselves, of course.

OTN: Eyelet Chemise in Handmaiden Sea Silk (colorway: Midnight). Still. And a purple Donegal Tweed set of fingerless mitts, to try out my new Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles.

Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.
