Norsk Strikkedesign

I got a lovely new book in the mail.  Well not new but rather one of the old ones, reprinted.  Lovely thing.  

And I will never make a single garment from it.  Here is why.    Just go through them and you will see what I mean.  A lot of them look like holdovers from the late 80's, the very over sized shoulders, the very very large ease designed into the garments.  And yet, I can see this getting really heavy use.  Heavy heavy heavy use.  

It has to be one of the best pattern books ever.  There is stunning patterning after stunning patterning.  It is simply the most beautiful book I have ever owned.
