Kitty’s Oriental Craft Shop on Ebay has 7 pages of wonderful craft books that include doll house miniature delights, felt dolls, quilting, beautiful kimono crafts, folk art, embroidery and heaps of books on bag making.
Of course there were a couple of great knitting ones that I had to buy (one for Van and one for me) but there were so many others that were just as tempting and it has been totally inspiring to browse through the pages as Lee has gone to great lengths to scan in detailed images from each of the books. There is the slight problem that none of the books seem to be in English but the images are fabulous enough.
Thanks Izan for thinking of me when finding this ebay gem.
So I have ordered two Japanese knitting books which means I will now have to learn how to read Japanese knitting patterns (via sugar cubed). Hmmm, perhaps a little unrealistic – but how could I resist?
