More books on German lace knitting – クンスト編みの古い本



kunststricken04Several weeks ago I found some used books about German lace knitting (Kunststricken). As I couldn’t order them to be send to Japan, I had them sent to my mother. Last week she mailed them to me.

kunststricken03One book is a reprint from an old German lace knitting book published in 1924. It is written in old German gothic language. Luckily I can still read it. It came with all knitting charts. The other two are magazines from 1985 and 1996. Both have so many beautiful pieces for beginners and lace master knitters. Really hard to choose, what to knit first. There is a very beautiful curtain I like very much. The other magazine has a wonderful mohair triangular shawl, which is now also on my ‘to-knit’ list. Maybe something for winter.
