kitty: Japanese craft book - 4579111591

Japanese Craft Books - Amazon JP - 4579111591

(??? Garter Stitch Knitting)
荒井 佐紀子 (著) - (Sakiko Arai)
79 pages - 2007/09

This title would definitely be a case had I had the ability to flip through the book before hand I doubt that I would have picked it up. As with most Japanese craft books it is always a good idea to see if you can find anyone who has posted any pictures from the interior of the books. Since it is doubtful that you are going to find them at the local bookstore in the US. That is the key reasons I really try to post a few photos of the interior pages of books that I have picked up.

I have been staring at this book for awhile though and I couldn't find anything about it online. And as with any cat, the curiosity was killing me. The satisfaction though brought a book of colourful garter stitch projects. The majority of the book is +, -, X, and counting 1-10. There are also a few colourful scarves and the blanket below.

  1. It looks interesting! Thanks for posting about it.

    And thanks for the compliments on Tishdecke. You don't want to buy the FO, you want to knit it yourself. Really!

  2. I actually kind of like that scarf.
