I hadn't heard of this book until I saw it on eBay yesterday (I think). Does anyone know anything about it? My daughter is a serious lace knitter and I was wondering if she would find it useful. And it's by Barbara Walker, after all, so it can't be bad, can it?
I haven't read that one, but as you say ~ it can't be bad if it's by Barbara Walker. I think Kelley Petkun on the KnitPicks Podcast was talking about lace books just one or two podcasts ago. I'm sure she mentioned this one, but I may be wrong.
Wow. I really will pick up anything by Barbara Walker I'll have to look for it now.
If you already have the first three treasuries, you'll find that these single-subject books are taken from them - I have the "multicolor" book - they enfold all (or most) of the stitches in that category from each of the treasuries into a single volume.
Good to know calotype. I have often wondered if there is overlap in the stitch patterns.
Anything by her is amazing. Also School House Press is re-releasing Susana Lewis' Lace Workshop which has been out of print for many years. It is a masterpiece!
I went and bought the book on eBay. It is like the "Mosaic Knitting" book by Barbara Walker, too, a collection of all the patterns of that type from her Treasuries. Good book, my daughter loves it. "Mosaic Knitting" is somewhat known, but this one isn't.
You learn something new every day.
