401Re: [SouthSuburbanSnB] Stitch Pattern Books
- Nov 13, 2006I was at the Orland Park Library the other day and noticed an Alice Starmore book on Arans. I didn't have time to look through it, but it's probably very interesting. You could get it brought to your local library through interlibrary loan- or you could go check it out. The villages all honor each other's library cards.--

The ladies in my aran knitting e-group all love the four Barbara
Walker stitch dictionaries. They're constantly debating which is best
or celebrating because they've just completed the set. I think only
books three and four are charted -- and watch out, because Barbara
Walker also has a stitch dictionary of mosaic patterns, which are not
part of the four-book series.
Anyway, you might be able to find one or several at the library. I
know the Oak Lawn library has at least one of the volumes.
I'm not all that familiar with the Vogue dictionaries, but I do know
that volume two is the cable volume and that my aran knitters group
has rated it a good primer, rather than a comprehensive manual.
