    Delightful

    You must keep in mind the vintage of this work and that some of the fancy lettering does not copy well. You will find a beautiful story where fairies teach a child to crochet and knit. The patterns range from scarves to dolly sweaters, and offers good detail on buttons and fine points. A find!

    Interesting book

    There are many typos, etc., but the story is interesting and the pictures and illustrations are pretty clear. The instructions seem to be pretty good, too, from what I have read so far.

    Would love to have a reproduction copy

    This nook version contains the text and scanned illustrations, which are quite charming. However, some of the text appears as nonsense symbols, so you don't get all of the story. I would gladly pay for a good reproduction hard copy, if anyone wishes to reissue this book.
