Although you are learning the techniques I think you will have to 
be a knitter pre book.
I don't feel it's for a beginner knitter but it is for a beginner to Lace Knitting.

Even if you've tried lace knitting previously I think this book has a lot to offer.
Just learning the different techniques and the tips that will help
are worth purchasing the book for.
