I was wondering what to blog about today when I remembered I promised to tell you what books I have for lace knitting or knitted lace (it's all the same to me, although I do know it isn't).
I have other books (many, many, ... thinking of starting a library!) which have lace patterns in them, I have many individual patterns for shawls not in books, but that's a list of the books which are just on Lace Knitting or Knitted Lace.
If you were only going to buy one I'd recommend ...
Either 'Heirloom Knitting' for it's text book type layout, encouraging and detailed explanations and reference quality. When you get into it there's an easy conversational writing style, but, it is a little daunting for a beginner, and it sat on my shelf for many months before I used it.
Or 'Victorian Lace Today' for it's beautiful photography and for the fact that there are only 2 designs in it I wouldn't knit for myself if I had time, this book makes you want to learn how to knit lace, right now, today!
[Due to the blurry photo I have linked to amazon and for the o.o.p. one to eBay.]
Hmmm! Did Yarn snob say I was a stasher, books are another thing ... *blushes*
