Product description

Today "lace" doesn't just mean doilies knit in very fine yarn; often the yarns are not fine and the needles large for faster knitting and greater impact. A Gathering of Lace samples the best traditional and contemporary lace knitting. This collection includes sweaters, vests, shawls, gloves and socks - some are simple enough for the new knitter while others will stimulate seasoned lacers.

Author information

Meg Swansen learned to knit at her mother's knee - a knee that happened to belong to British-born designer Elizabeth Zimmermann, a leading figure in handknitting since the mid-1950s. Now, as the owner of Schoolhouse Press, Meg wears many (knitted) hats: she publishes knitting books, runs a mail order business, writes the semi-annual Wool Gathering, has produced nearly 20 instructional videos, and presided over Knitting Camp. Meg lives in an old school house in Wisconsin.

Review quote

"'A beautiful book that samples the best of both traditional and contemporary lace knitting; it is a collection of patterns from a number of sources and includes biographies of the designers and a snippet of prose for each pattern. It is good to see lace patterns in a variety of yarns, both chunky and fine. All designs are charted with some suitable for beginners and others very much for the experienced lace knitter. This would make a delightful present for someone special or for yourself.' SlipKnot, Knitting & Crochet Guild, Sept '04"
