Nobody misses 90s knits

Posted by Nicole. Comment (1).




Some lovely patron donated old knitting books to the library. We’re adding the best of the lot to the collection. I’m keeping the so-so books for my knitting group; these patterns require reworking since they’re almost uniformly huge, but aren’t dealbreakers. The final group is books of patterns so ugly and busy that I couldn’t in good conscience even sell the lot. First I’ll make sure they’re not somehow classics that go for a lot online (the library could use the moolah). Once I’ve done that, if they’re as unwanted by everybody else as they are by me, I will put them in the book sale, on the off chance that somebody wants to pay $.50 for these collections of almost uniformly unflattering knits.

    Nicole – I too have many knitting books that my mom collected during a lifetime of knitting. Rather than just ‘trashing’ them, I’d like to donate them to knitters who will appreciate their content. Although I live in VA, I am in East Bergen county until the middle of this coming week. Please let me know whether you or your Meet Up group are intersted and we can arrange a drop off. I’ve got about a computer printer paper box of material. V/r AD
