Editorial Reviews

peppermintmochamama.blogspot.com - Amy Sessions
"If you have been wanting to knit beaded lace but are like me--a bit too intimidated--I highly recommend this book. Anniken holds your hands and guides your needles with such an encouraging and enthusiastic touch. She'll have you believing you can tackle anything...and she's right there with you to lend a hand."
KRW Knitwear Studio - Karen Whooley
"Author Anniken Allis has created a delightful book of 25 knitted items that cover all levels of knitters....Even a beginner can easily follow along and expand their knitting skill set. What I love most about the book...is that she has rated each pattern by complexity, not skill level. She doesn't want to scare you away from any piece, and I find that wonderfully refreshing!"
About.com - Sarah White
"If you already love beaded lace, you're going to want to pick up this book. It has a nice variety of patterns and uses both beads and lace in different ways, which is fun. If you're new to the idea of adding beads to lace, this book is a great place to start, too, because of the well-organized projects. Start at the beginning and pick something that doesn't have beads all over it, and you'll soon have the confidence to knit some of the bigger projects."

UK-based knitwear designer Allis has published patterns in a number of popular knitting magazines, and her first book-length collection focuses on her true passion—beaded lace. An introduction provides an overview of lace knitting techniques, with a focus on specialty cast-ons and bind-offs commonly used. However, only one technique for adding beads to knitted lace is included—an unusual choice for a book that concentrates on beaded lace knitting. The patterns are organized by skill level, with the easiest first—however, "easy" is relative, since even those designs feature complex knitting. Each pattern includes written and charted instructions, as well as close-ups of the lace motif and photos of the shawl worn by a model. The charts for each shawl are exceptionally clear, which is especially helpful as the lacework becomes more complex. VERDICT Adventurous knitters who enjoy luxurious knitwear will appreciate this collection of exquisite beaded shawls, but they may want to supplement with additional information on techniques for adding beads to their knitting.
