Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Lace-weight yarn is wonderful to touch and gorgeous to look at—but besides shawls, what’s it good for? Sulcoski (Sock Yarn Studio) and a team of well-known designers, including Franklin Habit, Véronik Avery, and Marly Bird, will expand knitters’ horizons with this diverse collection of projects knit in lace-weight yarns. The garments highlight the lovely qualities of a variety of different types of lace yarns, from delicately haloed mohair to fine merino blends. Though there are a few shawls, the focus is on nontraditional uses for lace yarn, such as cowls, hats, vests, and sweaters. There are also plenty of helpful tips for working with this type of yarn, including suggestions for needle choice and finishing techniques. VERDICT Knitters who love lace weight but are suffering from shawl overload (or who just don’t want to knit fidgety lace) will appreciate this new look at superfine yarn.” —Library Journal
