When Interweave decided to bring A History
of Hand Knitting back into print, we had no electronic files
or film to make any changes in the interior of the book. It is printed
in black and white exactly as the original. However, we did create
a new cover jacket, and we thought we had removed all references
to color, but we missed some.
We sincerely apologize for the discrepancies.
The caption for the images on these pages are cut off.
