First published in 1938, this book has been regarded as a must-have by knitters worldwide. I have passed it up at my local library for being too "boring" (i.e. drawings instead of photographs, wordy, black and white, "outdated") but I decided it was time that I got myself a copy. After all, I had passed up EZ's Knitting Without Tears for the very same reason and only gave it a chance when I found it for $2.50 at my local library bookstore!
I got this copy of Mary Thomas's Knitting Book online for .93 cents plus shipping and handling. A total of about $3.99. I can't wait to read it and come back and tell you more about it!
I'm sure it will be a fascinating read.
