About the Author:

Martha Waterman, of Janesville, Iowa, teaches, writes about, and creates traditional needlework, including quilting, spinning, knitting, and crochet-lacemaking. She is a fifth-generation needlewoman who specializes in the traditions of her Irish, Welsh, Scots, and English ancestry. Raised in a family skilled in traditional handcrafts, she was taught needlework at an early age by her mother and grandmother. Her quilt work has been exhibited nationally, and her articles appear regularly in national publications.

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.
