This time I visited Kinokuniya Bookstore in the International District. They have a large craft section containing lots of interesting quilting, crochet, embroidery, sewing, and of course, knitting books. I picked up these pictured below.

Cable SweaterLove these too:
Aran Knit has no English text, but like other Japanese knitting books it is full of helpful charts. The other books are Crochet Accessories (ISBN978-4-277-43080-7), Tokyo Style Beads Collection (ISBN4-05-402717-2). The fourth book has no English title but it's been blogged a lot and I'm sure you recognize it. The ISBN number is ISBN978-4-529-04140-9. I'll post photos from these later.
Oh, and be sure to check out the stationary supplies! They lots of notebooks, plastic sleeves, and loads of colored gel pens, for which I have a weakness.
I know some of you plan to visit Seattle soon, so don't hesitate to go to the International District though on a map it looks like it's a long way from the city center. It's a short cab ride away and an interesting long walk if you're up for it. Be sure to visit the huge Asian grocery store next door, Uwajimaya. I picked up some interesting looking tea, they had some tasty looking candy treats and a large selection of bento boxes.
