At last!

Yesterday, I got a present.  Okay, I had to buy it for myself, but it is still a gift.

Principles of Knitting, by June Hemmons Hiatt, was first published in 1988.  It has been out of print for years, now.  I remember reading on the internet how people were paying $400 and $500 for old copies of this book.  Since I had never seen it and had no idea how to find it, (and it was a LOT of money), I forced it from my mind.

Yesterday, it arrived at the shop and last night it went home with me.  I browsed and turned the 650 pages until my hand was tired.  What a treasure trove!

It weighs almost 4 and a half pounds ...and it is going on vacation with me!



  1. I've got a copy too and it's awesome!
