A charted stitch and border dictionary and instructions for a full-sized Eastern Star gossamer shawl are provided for those who wish to create one. Interviews with shawl knitters and the details of a shawl-buying party the authors attended at the home of a Muslim Tatar family in Orenburg make particularly fascinating reading.

Nancie Wiseman

August 1998
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
As fewer and fewer Americans have the opportunity to learn the exquisite needlework techniques that enriched life in past centuries, we are seeing in magazines like PieceWork and books like Wiseman's and Schurch's, reviewed above, attempts to preserve what remains of traditional textile craft techniques and patterns. For Wiseman, a 100-year-old leather notebook, filled with lace patterns and samples and belonging to a Miss Blanche Beau of Sacramento, CA, was the jumping-off place for adventures in deciphering, rewriting, and charting a marvelous collection of old lace edgings. Comprehensive information on the tools and techniques of lace knitting makes this book a good choice for beginners, while the more than 58 lace patterns included will appeal to the more experienced. Rounding out the book are 15 projects...

Traditional Knitted Lace Shawls
Martha Waterman

July 1998
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Waterman's contribution to Interweave's new "Lace Knitting" series is a revised edition of her Traditional Knitted & Lace Shawls (Dos Tejedores, 1993. o.p.). If your library is lucky enough to have the earlier edition, you might want to hold on to it because the color photographs and many of the illustrations in the first edition were not included in this revision. Be aware, however, that one of the reasons for the revision was to correct errors in several of the shawl patterns, which were also rewritten for clarity. Waterman includes step-by-step instructions for knitting eight shawls as well as information on materials, design, stitch patterns (newly charted for this edition), shaping, and incorporating stitch patterns into shawl designs. Recommended for public libraries and textile crafts collections.Copyright...
