Synopsis: Tessa Lorant has taken some treasured patterns from the past and shown us, with flair and ingenuity, how to turn them, easily and at a modern pace, into the dainty and enchanting knitted lace edgings illustrated in this book. These patterns give an excellent grounding in lace knitting for the newcomer to the craft, while also providing unusual patterns for the advanced knitter. Many of these edgings are based on knitting ‘recipes’ first published in the Victorian age, written up in the craft magazines first brought out at that time. The book includes a section on how to prepare the completed laces quickly and easily, explaining how to achieve the built-in shapes which transform the edgings into spectacular and enchanting enhancements for any garment. Some suggestions on how to store the laces so that they keep their shape are also included.
About the Author: Tessa Lorant began her working life as a computer programmer, then married an author who encouraged her to write. She started out by writing on her hobby of knitting, publishing thirteen books on textile crafts as well as patenting two knitting aids. She is featured in Richard Rutt’s seminal A HISTORY OF HAND KNITTING. After her husband died of cancer Tessa wrote, at his request, A VOICE AT TWILIGHT, writing as Tessa Lorant Warburg. This looks at the experience of living – and dying – with the Big C. Tessa won the Oddfellows Social Concern Book Award for this; the prize was presented at the House of Commons. As family members kept telling her how like her husband the book sounded she thought she could try to use that skill to write fiction. Tessa has now published six suspense novels and a trilogy. She is working on a detective series - PROOF POSITIVE - and a book on wildflowers, as well as adapting more Victorian knitting patterns for the 21st Century.
