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!
