New Style of Heirloom Knitting

I came across January One's blog today with a photo of this:

Isn't that gorgeous? It's from the book, New Style of Heirloom Knitting, and it's in Japanese. Do I dare order it on-line? Evidently, some people are locating copies at local specialty shops. If you know of someplace in the US or Canada that has this, leave me a comment.

Still working on the garter stitch fox scarf. It's not even worth photographing.

I want that sweater. SOOOOOO bad.

Isn't it gorgeous? Supposedly, it's knit in about a sport weight yarn for a 34" chest size. I'm thinking worsted or aran weight would make for some easy upsizing. I think I will order the book today.

I am smitten with it too but I'm waiting to see how people do with it when they try to knit it. If you get the book, please post about how the pattern is organized and if the schematics are good enough to get you knitting.

I ordered it online but it hasn't come yet. I hear that sweater is in DK weight - Won't that be perfect in my Jo Sharp? I knew I was saving it for a reason... if it's worsted I have some cascade 220, or if aran I have some Jaeger shetland aran. Oh joy! to have a generous yarn stash is a true blessing!

I ordered mine from YesAsia. Lower price than anywhere else, and no shipping charge. It came in about 5 days from Japan. This is one beautiful book! Schematics are good; charts are okay. You can knit from this w/o knowing any Japanese.
