Last weekend I went back, and it was still there - and still expensive. However, I spotted a cheap book (about a tenth of the shawl book) on the same shelf, a reprint of a crochet book from 1848. I bought them both, of course, divided the sum by two and pretended they cost the same.
True, it would have been easier to buy the shawl book at once, but I actually sort of enjoy this kind of justification game.
|Not that I think I will ever try to crochet anything from the book (no
diagrams but written instructions only),|
but I just can't resist books with designs like this one.
My grandmother who taught me how to knit would have turned 92 today, so I'm sending her some extra thoughts.
