Summary

Summary

Set against the backdrop of the world's tallest peaks, author Andrea Jurgrau's New Heights in Lace Knitting helps knitters create a beautiful collection of lace shawls and accessories and gain confidence in creating standout knitted lace.

Before starting any journey, knitters need to load their packs (or in this case, their knitting bags) with the right supplies. New Heights in Lace Knitting outlines exactly what knitters need in order to cerate a successful finished project. Knitters are guided through choosing the right yarns for lace, basic lace techniques, and a comprehensive how-to for adding beads to lace projects.

Beginners might start with a smaller project, such as fingerless mitts with lace detail, while experienced knitters may start with a lace shawl project that challenges their know-how. In all, there are 17 lace patterns that knitters are going to love exploring.

Library Journal Review

Jurgrau (New Vintage Lace) chose a clever theme for this collection: mountain climbing. It begins with a series of small projects inspired by some of the world's great mountain hikes, whetting knitters' appetites for what comes next: extravagant pieces inspired by the world's tallest peaks. It explores shape and color in unexpected ways, making use of trends in hand-dyed yarn in the Kilimanjaro-inspired African Violet shawl, and working with form and construction in the Denali stole. A bonus chapter takes a detailed look at triangular shawls. VERDICT Adventurous knitters will be drawn to Jurgrau's exquisite lace designs-but novices will find that these peaks are not insurmountable, thanks to an excellent introductory tutorial on lace-knitting techniques. © Copyright 2016.
