5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and Inspirational! May 9 2005
By J. Armenti - Published on Amazon.com
I love this book, it is full of creative and beautiful patterns that can be adapted to make many other things. My favorite are the 4 lace hanger covers! There are a lot of edgings for tablecoths, napkins, hankies, towels, sheets, pillowcases, curtains and more. There is an amazing bedspread, a pomander, preserve covers, doilies, a basket cover, and so much more I can't remember it all. A lot of the table covers and even doilies, could be adapted to make baby blankets and shawls! It's just such beautiful lace, I love looking through the book again and again. The materials for the projects are easy to come by as well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Traditional Lace Knitting, Second Edition Oct. 15 2006
By Scottish Gypsy - Published on Amazon.com
What a complete disappointment. I love lace knitting and have been doing it for decades, but this is a travesty...a waste of time. For having been printed the first time in 1997 (11 years ago), just think about your grandma's house from the 1950s and that is what you will get...everything dripping in lace.

Now, don't misunderstand me, there is nothing wrong with towels, pillowcases, napkins, or placemats having a little bit of hand-made knitted lace attached. But I draw the line at doing all of that work for a wine bottle cozy, lace clothes for freaky looking dolls, or preserve jar covers. It's just too over the top.

There are better lace books out there. Barbara Abbey's "Knitted Lace" being one of the best. "Heirloom Knitting", "First Book of Modern Lace Knitting", and a few others. If you really want to look this book over check it out of your local library before spending the money.
