There are some basic Dover reprints (all at home, I'm sorry) that

I didn't mention all the books I already have on Irish crochet, mostly
Dover.  And I picked up another one at the same place I got the hook,
because it charted everything.  (How easy can you get?)  That's where I've
been looking for non-traditional patterns.

BTW, the Ondori books, all in Japanese, are the best crochet books
anywhere.  They chart all the stitches, and have tons of clear and explicit
pictures.  They're so good you don't have to read Japanese to 'get it'.

Woo hoo!  I will go there as soon as I can.  Thanx.
