Love this Lace pattern book.

This is my #1 favorite Lace Knitting pattern book. So glad I bought it. Very beautiful patterns and simple also. Love how the painted yarns do the talking in these projects and not the pattern like most.

Beautiful, beautiful lace!

I liked this book so well, I ordered a second copy as a gift for a dear friend. I won't always be able to afford the hand-painted yarns to work with, but even just using less expensive yarns will still create some truly beautiful works of art. The patterns aren't difficult to follow, and the results are worth the concentration! I highly recommend this book!

Really Beautiful Lace

This is a must have for lace knitters. The only problem I have is that all the patterns are charted. I prefer to knit from written instructions. Many times, both are included, but not in this book. The photos are very nice. There is a nice variety of projects also. Just be prepared for charts.

The book on lace that holds my attention

Out of the many books on lace this is the one that is definitely holding my attention for a long time. Knitting lace is one technique that has befuddled me but on the first read-through of this great book - I already understand basic how's and why's of lace knitting. With this explanation packed book one can go way beyond the basics - you have basic explanations and then you have the directions to "see" / envision your lace project in another light. I like the layout of the book - clear charts and photos, how-to design sidelines, very clear explanations and directions for envisioning your project.

Great book - for new and experienced lace kntiters!

If you've never knit lace before, and are afraid of complicated instructions, fine yarn, and tiny needles, this book is for you. Each project is explained with simple charts and extra tips including "Beginner's Edge", "Technical Tips", and "Learning Curve". If you go through the projects in order, you will build on your skills and be an expert before you finish the book. If you are an experienced lace knitter, this book will help you explore your creativity as you test swatches with different yarns, play with different colorways, and let your imagination go wild. You will find that lace knitting can be modern and stylish, as well as old-fashioned and elegant. If you are thinking about buying this book to learn more about lace knitting, stop thinking and buy it today! You won't regret it.
