Reviews

"With 16 beautiful projects inspired by the past, you will have everything you need to start an heirloom shawl of your very own." --Let's Knit"The book is a haven for lace knitters and advance lace knitters alike. I love the resources this books allows and all of the information that Andrea shoves into these 140 pages." --Rohn Strong Designs"Do you love knitting lace? Have you ever wanted to but felt like it was too challenging? You will find this book to be enlightening as well as informative." --Dishcloth Diva"If you're planning to knit all day under the beach umbrella while your kids swim in the lake or ocean, and you don't have to keep an eye on them, or if you're going up to a cabin in the woods to get away from it all, these projects will be perfect. And you will come home with an heirloom-quality lace shawl that you will be able to wear anytime, whether the occasion is formal or casual." --"In Stitches," My Central Jersey"Andrea has a structured way of working that I find inspiring. The book is beautiful, and the projects timeless." --Kyle William"Andrea has carefully adapted vintage lace patterns to modern, wearable pieces." --Knit and Travel and Such"Vintage lace is clearly a long-time passion for the author. She answered nearly every question that popped into my head as I was reading. As I said the patterns are pretty, and interesting. Buy the book to knit them, but don't miss out on all of the instruction that is packed into this book." --Knitty"Fascinated by vintage lace doilies and tablecloths, particularly German Kunststricken (art knitting), Andrea Jurgrau has translated these retro knits into twenty modern projects that include shawls, hats, scarves, stoles, beaded shawlettes and even a doily or two. Improvising on historical doilies and obscure pattern pamphlets, Jurgrau has created a dramatic collection of lace goods illustrated with helpful schematics and clear charts. The stars: Coeur d'Amour, a gob-smacking semi-circular shawl shown in crimson, the pretty Blue Dahlia and the remarkable Ghost Orchid, a breathtaking floral masterwork perfect for bride or chuppah. Then walk through Chapter 5 on doily dissection for a window into how you can 'shawl-ize' something yourself." --Vogue Knitting

"Her designs are beautiful; the lace is integrated, matched perfectly to each piece and looks effortless... All of her lace is beautiful, but never too precious or hard to knit that you wouldn't wear it. Her patterns are so well planned and executed that they are a joy to knit." --Knitty

"The book is so much bigger and meatier than I expected and begins with some great hints and tips--essential reading to unlock the beauty of lace knitting. Each chapter focuses on a lace technique or stitch and then explores it through projects that have detailed patterns and elegantly written instructions so there is sure to something that takes your fancy." --A Kingfisher Morning
