A book of beautiful lace knitted items to die for!,
This review is from: Shetland Lace (Paperback)
Such a lovely book. The shawl patterns have knitted up beautifully and I have made very special gifts that are authentic and priceless. To purchase similar items would cost the earth!
The instructions are very straightforward and with a little planning they are easily followed. I found it useful to make several photocopys of the intructions for the borders. This meant that I could easily keep track of where I was during the working of the repeated border pattern. I also photocopied the rest of the pattern and was able to track the whole of the knitting without spoiling the book for future projects.
I easily obtained the correct yarn for the work using the information given in the book. The suppliers were helpful and efficient.
Finishing instructions are clear, simple and give lovely results. For those who love to knit beautiful items this book is a gem. I love it!
