Today, books arrived. I bought them from the damaged book sale at Interweave. And actually both of these books were barely damaged so their price reduction was worth it. Shipping only took about 3 weeks from the US to Canada.
200 Crochet Blocks - if you buy this book, check for corrections. My edition had about 8patterns that had corrections needed.
Nicky Epstein's Knitted Embellishments - a great resource book which has lots of edges, or stand alone knitted items that can be sewn to your garment or other creations.
I recommend both books as great resources, and both must be in your library.
