9781596682276: Wrapped in Lace: Knitted Heirloom Designs from Around the World

The spectacular knitted lace designs of New Zealand designer Margaret Stove are truly the pinnacle of the craft. In Wrapped in Lace, dive into Margaret's love for learning and creating knitted lace, then begin your own journey to master lace knitting with 12 original patterns.

To appreciate the history of knitted lace, follow Margaret's quest to design and knit the legendary "wedding ring shawl"--a large lace shawl so fine and delicate that it can be drawn through a wedding ring. Wrapped in Lace shares the art of designing patterns and the characteristics of lace traditions from around the world.

Framed by an engaging narrative of learning to create knitted lace from scratch, Wrapped in Lace describes each set of lace techniques, patterns, and traditions in depth and offers Margaret's spectacular patterns for lace shawls, stoles, and scarves. These projects illustrate knitted lace from the Faroe Islands, Shetland Islands, Orenburg, Estonia, and lace motifs of New Zealand, as well as more contemporary European work. As an added bonus, Wrapped in Lace includes Margaret's tips for preserving, restoring, and remaking knitted lace heirlooms.

About the Author:

Margaret Stove is a leading expert of handknitted superfine lace. Examples of her work are found in many galleries and private collections throughout the world. A passion for knitting and later designing lace led Stove to explore techniques for spinning lace yarns. She teaches lace knitting and spinning for lace internationally, and her line of New Zealand Merino lace yarn and patterns is distributed in the United States and throughout the world.

Review:

"New Zealander Margaret Stove is a doyenne of knitted lace, and has spent her life teaching and developing the spinning of gossamer yarn through her company Artisan Lace. This book is an exploration of designs and traditions, and is a must-read for any serious lace knitter. The book represents her wish to share with others all she has learnt about knitted lace over her long career. Each intricate, beautiful garment is accompanied by detailed writings on how the design came about, referring to special pieces in Margaret's collection, how she went about selecting stitch patterns and edgings, and providing expert tips to produce flawless results. She also explores how knitted lace holds such an important place in family histories, and this book will inspire you to create your own heirloom pieces that will be passed down through the generations." - The Knitter

"Share the personal knitting journey of the author as she describes how she learnt to knit lace from scratch through to the spectacular pieces she now produces. Each story is accompanied by in-depth description of the lace techniques used, patterns to complete the piece and the traditions she drew on for inspiration. The 11 original projects include highlight techniques from such far and distant places as the Shetland Islands, Orenburg and Estonia. Then there are details on how she invented and perfected new lace designs that represent her home country, New Zealand. As an expert on lace repair and conservation there is much information shared on the processes involved in preserving and repairing your own heirlooms." - Innovative Machine Embroidery & Textile Art

"The lovely patterns would be enough, but the book also includes tips on designing different shapes of shawls and explanations of how different kinds of shawls are traditionally put together. Even if you never design a shawl for yourself, this information will make reading, understanding and knitting from lace patterns that much easier for you in the future." - About.com Guide to Knitting

"If you are a new lace knitter there are projects in this book that will help you be the lace knitter you are deep down. If you are experienced, then this book will also be fantastic for you." - Beth, Threesheeps.blogspot.com
