Traditional Knitted Lace Shawls, just picked up from the library and it looks like a keeper. She tells/shows you how design shawls, all shapes and sizes and gives lots of patterns. I will have to have this one for my library. I see there is also a #2 so I might have to take a peek at that one too. Boy I love this book. She even has a section on working without a pattern. I am one happy girl! [:00]
I did one half-circle pi-shaped shawl, one full-circle ray shawl, and a faroese-shaped shawl as well using this same book. I'm currently planning a lace full-circle pi and hauled it out again last night to double-check the row counts between increases. It's one of those essential design books that every knitter should have in his/her library, in my opinion.
