I’m in Italy looking for new yarns. They can make cables from anything here:
Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore (The Duomo)
Back to my book list:
5 & 6, The Mary Thomas books are real gems. Want to know how to knit a circle? Mary Thomas tells you at least 3 different ways. Want to know how to incorporate welts or pleats or or other dress making details into your designs? Mary Thomas is your woman. Written in the 1940′s, the techniques described span from those popular in Victorian times to post WWII, but all of it is useful for modern knitting. Her attitude is very funny and relaxed too. I would have liked to have met her.
