A Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara G. Walker

May 5, 2006

If you are thinking about doing knitting design and need some inspiration, this is the place to go. I can’t tell you how many ideas went running through my head with every page I flipped through. Our library has the second volume and it’s just as invaluable as the first. As I flip through I want to go swatch crazy, which is saying something. I can’t wait to get some of these ideas out on paper and to publications!

I got the book yesterday afternoon as a late birthday present. I’ve since flipped through it several times day dreaming of sweaters and scarves. Thanks Mom!

    I discovered Barbara Walker in my jr. high school library, back in the stone age, and I don’t think I’ve found any other knit pattern book that compares to them.

    I’ve worn out my copies–pages are falling out of vol. 1, but then I’ve had them for at least ten years. They should republish these in a spiral-bound version, since I can’t get them to stay open while I knit! I wind up charting the patterns on graph paper, just to make reading easier.

    You could probably get your volume 1 spiral bound. I had to do that with one of my music books because it wouldn’t stay open. If you take it to Kinkos or a print shop they should be able to slice the binding off and put in the spiral without loosing any of the print.

    I like the idea of charting out the patterns. I may have to do that with the more complicated ones.
