If you could hold the book on the right, you would know that it was a fave. It is well worn, not necessarily from knitting everything in it, but from reading it.
Several years in a row, I had the notion that I would follow along and knit everything in the book in a year. Yep, that happened like not at all.
A few years ago, Schoolhouse Press re-did the book in color and re-released it. But of course, I had to own it and I am not sad that I did.
It is just that I love my first edition more.
