5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous and innovative patterns - one of the best!, 4 Feb 2012
This review is from: Loop-d-Loop Lace: More Than 30 Novel Lace Designs for Knitters (Hardcover)
One of the best knitting books out there - beautiful and innovative patterns that push the boundaries with lace knitting. I'm looking forward to knitting many of the patterns in this book if I can just get past the first one (the Palm Leaf Wrap). Somewhat frustratingly it has some errors and as the book was only recently published, it seems that all the errata and suggested fixes aren't really out there yet (though STC Craft has posted a few on their website). I guess that's the only downside to this book - but I did want it soon after it was published, and not to have to wait for a corrected reprint, so that's the pay-off. The patterns are truly beautiful - I love what Teva does with chunky yarn and lace - really magnifying traditional lace (which is often knitted with fine yarn on microscopic needles) and almost "supersizing" it. This results in a modern, cutting edge result that makes lace look really funky and interesting, not just pretty/girly/traditional. I look forward to Teva's next book - this is a really amazing development on the original Loop-d-loop book and contains loads of interesting information on the stitches/stitch types she's chosen to use.
