    "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"
