Homepage Image

The image used on the homepage of Novel Knitting comes from my own stock photos. I took this image when I was about to leave home in Healdsburg, California to go stay with my daughter in Atlanta, Georgia. Since I was taking only a few books from my own personal library, the books and bookcases were going into storage with the very real prospect of never seeing any of it again. I wanted to preserve it in all its glory. But this one images doesn’t show my entire library. The rest of it is shown

The two bookcases shown here were purchased for about $400 each in Modesto, California back in 2003 from a place called Oak Warehouse, I believe. I am told they would cost at least twice that now, if you could get them at all. They are made of solid oak.
