A tour de force treatment of one of the greatest knitting traditions. Miller's passion for the subject is equal to her skill in explaining how traditional Shetland lace is made - and how dedicated knitters can knit it themselves. I learned how to knit lace from this book, and treasure it. Worth every penny.

Heirloom Knitting is extremely well-researched, with lots of wonderful in-depth information on the history of Shetland Lace. It contains a few beautiful and intricate patterns, as well as a stitch dictionary to help you create your own. Sharon Miller's instructions are clear and easy to follow, which makes the shawls a pleasure to knit. ( )

Heirloom Knitting is an outstanding reference for anyone wishing to learn or improve skills in Shetland-style lace knitting. Chapters include: Introduction, Knitting Advice, Patterns, Design, Projects, Miscellany (reference material). Patterns are provided for several projects, but the focus is on techniques for design and knitting of Shetland lace. ( )

For those that love challenges, classic patterns and particularly, lace. Major time committments on these projects, but so worth it. ( )
