If you love the look of lace shawls but don't wear them then you may prefer this book. I wish I had time to knit the circular 'shawl/cardigan' on the cover. It's stunning.
And finally, I have to include my own book, Beaded Lace Knitting, a collection of 25 beautiful designs for shawls, scarves, garments and accessories. There's a comprehensive techniques chapter with clear, close up photos.
You can buy a signed copy of Beaded Lace Knitting or look for it online or in your favourite book or yarn shop.
Look out for more book recommendations in the future. I'm planning a post on my favourite knitting reference books and next week, I'll be reviewing Donna Druchunas' new book, 'Lithuanian Knitting'.
