What I love about this book is that there are several small sized, unintimidating projects for those new to lace knitting--as well as increasingly difficult projects as your experience grows.
But a very serious issue with this book is that there are NO GAUGES. None. Not even some to get you steering on the right path. This is a major obstacle for the beginning lace knitter. But as long as you are okay with that, then this book will be a joy in your knitting library.
There are designs for edgings and cloths. Edgings are great added to towels (makes a great gift--take a handtowel and sew on a handknitted lace edging or sew a lace insertion, which is knitted with two straight edges instead of one scalloped one and sew it onto the towel.) They are also a good learning tool for lace knitting, as they repeat a lot, and if you goof up on cotton edging yarn, you can just rip it out and begin again.
The author is also a designer of cross-stitch patterns. She has patterns for cross-stitch (no knitting) at her site ....
