Jan 12, 2009An updated look at the lace-knitting of Victoriana, including original and historic patterns. Victorian times brought new interest to knitting with the advent of printed patterns, allowing knitters greater complexity and a larger audience when sharing techniques and designs. The lace contained in this book is gorgeous and it also includes some historical notes. I would have liked to see more realistic outfits on the models (seriously, they look like they were dressed by kooky church ladies!) and An updated look at the lace-knitting of Victoriana, including original and historic patterns.

Dec 02, 2015Full of yardage and other errors - in several places, the item as knit does not match the item photographed. Some photos are out of focus.
Jul 19, 2018I haven't tried any of the patterns yet but I look forward to doing so. The non-pattern pages made for interesting reading, and the photographs are wonderful. I especially enjoyed the photographer's account of her meeting with Jane Sowerby.
Jun 02, 2018I love this book and I have already made a few Shawls from the patterns. Nicely written and lovely photos. I cant recommend it highly enough!

Mar 02, 2011I've dipped in and out of this book mainly for the patterns. Still trying to decide whether to buy it and break my rule of not adding to my shelves. I decided a while ago that I'm only buying from charity shops and then handing them back to re-sell or using the public library. Use it or lose it. We can't lose our libraries!
Jul 04, 2008This book is absolutely fabulous! There are tons of projects, and marvelous descriptions for everything. Several of the items are made with one of my favorite yarns, Rowan Kidsilk Haze. The final chapter of the book has photos of all the yarns used in the projects. There are also suggestions for yarn substitutions.
Sep 19, 2012I like this collection of patterns. It is primarily lace shawls and scarfs. They are beautiful and practical. There's a wide variety of types as well. The writer has collected old Victorian patterns and have adapted the instructions to the current conventions and with clarity.
Dec 08, 2009One of the few knitting books I own and one of two to travel to Japan with me. Also the one book I've knit the most projects from. This book is amazing and beautiful; it lives on the "show" bookshelf full of yarn and whiskey for people to peruse instead of on the coffee table, but it is our coffee table book.
