    I Loved It!

    This is the book that taught me to knit lace. Very informative & beautiful. I am still working my way through and have made the first few projects. I have purchased the recommended yarn for all. Clear instructions regarding technique & lacemaking. Also, good color information. Beautiful Photos & lots of them!

    While some of the designs were innovative, most of them were overly simplistic; I had been hoping for something other than just small scarves; perhaps a nice, large shawl or two? A good reference in terms of patterns, but a bit too limited for how much it costs.
