Icame across a darling shop with YARN in the Mission district of my fair City last weekend! It's called Princess Animal.
Kathy, the Regent there, has a really nice selection of knitting books, and I picked up the Ohio Knitting Mills Knitting book, which is a cool story of a serendipitous find! The author discovered the archives of hundreds (thousands?) of vintage sweaters while searching for something else, bought the whole lot up, and sold it in a Brooklyn boutique. A selection of the designs have been updated and written into patterns for you to knit. What a lovely gift for the vintage knitter in your life.
Be sure to check out Princess Animal next time you are on Valencia Street. There is a charming collection of witty gift items there that would appeal to anyone!
