Now, this book is currently in print - it was reissued by Dover in 2011 - but instead of paying the list price of $21.95, I paid $10, and it's in brand-new condition.
I got really excited because inside were pictures of a sweater I've wanted to make for years: the Oregon cardigan.
On further inspection though, it turns out that only the leaf chart for the bottom border is included. However, there are very clear photos which will enable me to recreate the main pattern. It's even on the cover of the book!
I'm glad I bought the book even though it doesn't have the pattern I was hoping for. There are tons of great charts included, and tips on designing a sweater using them, so it's a great addition to my Alice Starmore collection. And the Oregon sweater is way down the road for me anyway: I definitely want to finish my Queen Anne's Lace before starting another Starmore.
I haven't shown that sweater since last August! I did a good job of working on it consistently til about mid-December, but have only done a couple rows since then. But I'm really not that far from being done: I'd gotten all the way to starting the neck shaping. Here is the current state of affairs:
What a gorgeous pattern. Alice is truly a genius. Here's my armhole steek:
And the beginning of the neck shaping:
I should really turn off the TV and get back to this!
