Teva Durham is an acquired taste: her designs are always innovative, but not always wearable enough or "pretty" enough that you would want to invest the time needed to make them. The designs in LOOP D-LOOP LACE are no exception: they represent the designer's latest experiments based on mesh stitches, eyelets, lace samplers, leaf stitches, and traditional lace doilies; and not all are successful.

Three designs that I like well enough to consider making (and which justify the book purchase) are the purse stitch cardigan with flower brooch (a simple, shaped, mesh cardigan), the closed bud pullover (a long-sleeved, high-necked sweater with a leaf-design yoke, upper body, and flared cuffs), and the hug-me-tight cardigan (a shrug constructed with an elaborate sideways-knit lace back panel, an openwork front panel, a picked-up collar, and picked-up elbow-length sleeves).

Three "wow" designs that should interest experienced knitters are the lace puff bloomers (pretty knee-length pants with lace at knees and waist only--but does anyone want to wear knitted bloomers today?), the art deco leaves cardigan (a long-sleeved allover-lace-pattern cardigan with flared sleeves and asymmetrical front closing), and the Shetland shawl dress (a hard-to-describe overdress with asymmetrical half-skirt, entirely constructed of diagonal panels of traditional Shetland lace patterns).

Among the less successful designs are the sunray medallion tunic (a flared-sleeve pullover with a huge doily medallion on the front), the split leaves ottoman cover (a large-scale-lace item knitted on US 15 needles at 12 stitches and 16 rows to 7 inches), and the various large-scale-lace shawls, cowls, boleros, and capelets knit in heavy yarn (the book cover photo shows a large-scale-lace bolero).

I really wanted to like this one. I really enjoyed the original Durham Loop-d-Loop book and thought that it had many novel designs that were unique, but still functional. Yes, you can wear any of the knit lace numbers from Loop-d-Loop lace - but first off, the patterns seem kind of um... ordinary, especially for Teva Durham. The one on the cover is probably the most wearable, but upon closer inspection - this is just a typical cardigan with lace panels, ruffles and 3/4 sleeves. The rest of the book has things like a lace blouse with what looked like a side zipper (but was really some kind of funky closures) - kind of ugly and impractical or lace panels in pullovers that would require you to wear a shirt underneath. Sure, all these patterns can be modded to suit one's taste, but they all have sort of a hodge-podge novice-knitter feel to them, rather than designs that had a lot of thought put into them. It almost feels as if this was just thrown together. The butterfly lace tunic is probably the best, followed by the bell sleeve blouse - though there are a lot of complaints that there are mistakes on the sleeves. I seriously don't feel there is anything in here that is spectacular enough to purchase the book for - nothing that can't just as easily be found in the stitch dictionaries of any of the Walker books and then added to some traditional piece of clothing or otherwise found as a free pattern on ravelry. I've seen better lace wraps, more spectacular lace shawls, better designed and beautiful lace-panel sweaters and generally better thought out designs. As for projects like the ottoman cover or the sunflower satchel - um... anyone with a bit of knitting skills can do these projects without a pattern, except maybe a stitch dictionary. Meh...

I just got this book today but I have looked through it four or five times. There are good introductions to each chapter, and a nice variety of sizes for most projects. Some are done in bulky yarn, but I feel that the impact of the lace design in them is striking. Those projects are small and quick, giving someone the chance to try lace without a huge time and material commitment. Those of us who are more experienced will find a garment we like and dive right in. It has something for everyone.

I really appreciate Teva Durham's unique designs. She does not disappoint in this book - her lace designs are unusual and beautiful. Even if you don't knit anything from this book, its worth having to enjoy.

The designs in this book are fun and attractive, very Teva Durham! She creates some fantastic projects! But, like other patterns of hers that I have knit, there are errors! So frustrating! I don't recommend this book of patterns for beginners, even though many of the designs should be fairly easy! Be prepared to figure things out on your own!

I bought this book because I like several patterns in it. I decided on a new one but at a very discounted price. I thought you cannot go wrong with it. Personally I was not disappointed when the book arrived. If you want to see what's available in this book, go to Ravelry.com and look up this book - patterns will be shown. Good written information; great photos. Good patterns: several patterns for bulky yarn, several patterns for fingerling and DK as well. I think it is a very nice book for my knitting books shelve.
I bought it from Jersey Shore book and it was an excellent experience. I got my first book banged with hard cover ripped on top of both sides of a book. You could tell USPS had fun throwing it around. I emailed to Jersey Shore to let them know my book came in bad condition most likely destroyed by USPS during transit. In response I had an email back from them (within 1 hour) that another book will be on my way later that day. It was, another book in perfect condition arrived few days ago. This book was very inexpensive and I did not expect such a fast and excellent solution. I will make sure to do more and better business with Jersey Shore books in the future.
