More knitting books entry....

Before you gasp and accuse me of not sticking to the err...financially savvy me... I have to declare I have not bought these books YET. LOL although I think they are really interesting and are probably worth it...;;^^

Some are crochet-based but I think these would be a nice addition to any knitting library... ^^

Wow those looks like really nice books. Where do you order them from? How do you read the instructions?

Hi Melita!

Usually I get my Japanese knitting books from yesasia.com. They offer free mailing to orders above US$50. I n terms of pricing, they are also ok. Sometimes even cheaper than Kinokuniya...;;^^

Ou...and sometimes in yesasia.com they have promotions like if you order something, you'd get $5 vouchers etc...

On reading them, Japanese patterns tend to be done on graphs. This is also a handy link to have: http://www.tata-tatao.to/knit/graphchart/e-index.html

Also erm...actually I read Japanese...;;^^ I studied Japanese for 3 years in a Japanese language school when I was doing my undergraduate studies...;;^^
