Two great tastes that taste great together

Or something like that. See, I just discovered that the Ann Arbor District Library has twenty-seven (27!) pages of knitting books available in its catalog. Let’s say that again: twenty-oh-my-stars-seven pages! Knowing my love of the library, it is a little shocking that I didn’t tumble onto this a few months ago. But when I first started crocheting last summer, I was all eager to see every book out there, so, of course, I looked at the library. And the most up-to-date book they were offering was from like 1985, with black-n-white photos and models with poofy hair. Yikes! Knowing that knitting is way more popular, I should’ve figured that the AADL would be hip to the times and have good knitting books... but... dang! I wasn’t expecting 270 books worth! Hee hee.

So I have requested a modest amount to start with. Just four. I’ll save the other 266 for next time.

OMG! Are they all with patterns or about the history of knitting or something like that?

About 80% of them are pattern books!

And don't forget the power of inter-library loan!

Man, I love working in a library. Best. Job. Ever.

Score! Sounds like there's plenty there to keep you busy. BTW, I now know what to do with my crochet pattern books when I don't want them anymore. :)

Wahoo! Mine only carries things circa 1972 in those fab 70's colors. All four of them.
