Reviews - What do our customers think?
Nice addition to knitting library  Sep 12, 2008
This book is a great combination of a knitting book, coffee book, and Victorian history book. The author did extensive research for this book and it shows--she presents a fascinating history of the women who designed and created lace knitting pieces in the 1800s. The designs are written out and charted, which is great because they are complex. The photos are gorgeous and show off the projects. The shawls are stunning to look at and varied in design.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in knitting or reading about Victorian lace knitting patterns.
 
Victorian Lace Today  Aug 11, 2008
I was interested in learning how to knit lace. This book is for the more experienced knitter although I am not. But the patterns are beautiful and will be a great challenge. I recommend this book for the more expereinced knitter.
 
Eye candy for lace lovers  Jul 14, 2008
I don't knit, so I can't review the patterns in this book. But I love knitted lace, and this book is as much a coffee table book for the richness of its photos as it is a book of knitted lace history and patterns. You are taken to a place of elegance and calm, the solid structures of history, the delicate composition of lace drifting on the wind.
 
Inspiring  Jun 2, 2008
I was curious about the one reviewer who gave this book only 1 star. She says that there are many mistakes in the directions. If that is indeed true, it's a shame, given that this book is simply gorgeous. I don't generally follow patterns, so I'm not all that concerned with the accuracy of them.

So, for my purposes, this book warrants five stars. The knitting is absolutely stunning, as are the photographs of them. I never tire of browsing through this book. For that, it's inspirational.
 
Awesome, had to have it!  May 29, 2008
I saw this book referrenced on many blogs and sites. Saw alot of finished projects either directly from, or based on patterns in this book and they were gorgeous. I am a careful buyer so I decided to check the book out of the library and ordered it the next week!
I'm an experienced (not expert), but slow knitter so I know if and when I get around to actually using it for a pattern it will be great and easy to use. But the pictures, the scenery, and the history that's included in the book make it worth the buy even if you don't plan on actually knitting one of the shawls. Each pattern is explained, where it came from, charted into sections so you can easily adapt an edge to a different shawl, or a simple scarf, take a middle chart for a sweater sleeve, it's very versatile! And very beautiful.
