The winter months are the perfect time to knit. When I first came across Knits from the North Sea I was transfixed by the ethereal lace work. It is a breathtaking compilation of knitted shawls, stoles and scarves and I couldn't stop looking at it. As an intermediate knitter, the instructions themselves were clear and doable. This book will be in my library for years to come. I highly recommend it. It is the perfect gift for knitters even if they have never tried lace knitting before. --Barnes & Noble, Staff Recommendations

There are many better books out there on lace knitting. I found few projects in this book that I would ever knit. Try Nancy Bush's Estonian lace knitting instead.Published on November 4, 2009 by F. Figg
