In more Sarah’s-cleaning-out-the-office news, this week I’ve got two lace knitting books for your consideration and that I could be sending to you soon.
Knitted Lace by Anne Merrow has a few essays on lace knitting — how to get started with lace, casting on and binding off, and shaping in lace — as well as 25 designs previously featured in Interweave publications. (Check out the patterns on Ravelry.)
Also from Interweave, Lace Style by Pam Allen and Ann Budd has 21 designs as well as a designer’s notebook that talks about increases and decreases in lace, offers a bunch of example swatches and gives tips on things like centering lace motifs and fixing mistakes in your lace knitting. (Here are the patterns.)
If you would like these books, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, April 9. I’d love to know what sort of lace knitting you’ve done in the past, or if there’s a project here that jumps out at you.
Thanks for visiting, commenting and sharing, and good luck!
