Don't forget the charity book store and library...

People have been knitting, embroidering, sewing and crocheting since the beginning of time, and there is a mass of literature out there, and also some incredible trendy recent publications that I often just drool over.

But don't under-estimate your local library or second-hand book store- I always have a quick skwiz at their needlework section, and find some gems and good old basic know-how books, between what can only be described as very scary styles or fashions in needlework past... (More of that to come).  I found this complete knitting style file recently for only R20 at Kafda second hand books in Sea Point.    A fantastic find, as I am always looking to learn how to knit new textures and designs.  May just funk up the file cover a bit..,,
