If your idea of heaven is the time you knit (or crochet, quilt, stitch, weave or spin), there's an angel here for you. The only mystery is how seven simple knit pieces become such a spirited little presence.
The directions are well written and the end products are delightful. Angels: A Knitters's Dozen is a delightful book of lace angels, these angels can be used on a tree or free standing. If you like to knit and lace and angels are something you would like to do, this is the book for you.

I am having so much fun with this book. I had been looking for a little something to make as gifts for friends in my "fiber circle" ~ this covers them all! From weavers, to stitchers to spinners! Every angel is slightly different. I am sure that the recipiants of these little lace angels will be as charmed by them as I am.

I looked at this book a few times before actually buying it. I'm so glad I did. The angels are stunning, the instructions clear and well written, and I know I will enjoy creating these beauties for both myself and my loved ones.
A must have for lovers of lace knitting and or angels!

I made 8 lace angels for Christmas gifts and wasn't disappointed in any of them. The book is well written and the directions for finishing easy to follow. Working with thread and dpns is not for a beginner but the knitting really isn't that difficult. I loved how easy it is to personalize each angel by using different charms or accessories. I found it easier to hot glue them together instead of sewing. Also included are patterns for two large tabletop angels. These are as beautiful if not more so than crocheted angels! I am so glad I bought this book, I plan to make more and next time will keep one for myself!
