On this particular visit, I only had $6 in my pocket, so we had to make some tough choices. This one almost didn't make the cut, but I'm so glad it did! My first thought was that it could replace my other, larger, more delicate stitch reference books. It would easily fit in my knitting bag. Seemed like a good use of $1.
Later, as I had the opportunity to examine it more closely, I saw what an amazing reference it is! I wanted to find another copy for my friend Maya, so I started checking around on the internet. I was amazed - all the copies I could find were $42-100!
1. This one will be going on the shelf, not in the knitting bag;
2. Maya, I love you, but you're getting photocopies of interesting pages; and
3. I totally ripped off the Friends of the Library bookstore. Sorry!
(Did you notice the #1 in the title? hee hee - there's more later!)
