i love japanese craft books too.. let's save up & go kinokuniya in syd !!
Wow those looks like really nice books. Where do you order them from? How do you read the instructions?
Hi Melita!Usually I get my Japanese knitting books from yesasia.com. They offer free mailing to orders above US$50. I n terms of pricing, they are also ok. Sometimes even cheaper than Kinokuniya...;;^^Ou...and sometimes in yesasia.com they have promotions like if you order something, you'd get $5 vouchers etc...On reading them, Japanese patterns tend to be done on graphs. This is also a handy link to have: http://www.tata-tatao.to/knit/graphchart/e-index.htmlAlso erm...actually I read Japanese...;;^^ I studied Japanese for 3 years in a Japanese language school when I was doing my undergraduate studies...;;^^
