If there is one word I had to use to describe
this book it would be;


The book supplies you with everything you
will need to know to create this amazing
beautiful lace designs.

Before the chapters of the book start
you get a history of Shetland Lace Shawls.
They include beautiful historic pictures.


Chapter 1 is the apprentice pieces.
This chapter has step-by-step instructions
for knitting five mini shawls so that you can practice
the lace knitting techniques you learn.
Each of these can be knitted in any thickness of yarn
while you get used to the techniques.


Chapter 2 is the pattern section.
You can choose from any of the 15 shawl
patterns to start.
With learning all the techniques in chapter 1
you are capable of making any of the shawls in the book.


Each of the patterns has full instructions with photographs
and charts.
And although you have learnt all the techniques the
patterns are also marked with the 
concentration level so you can choose
one of the easier designs or one of the more difficult.

I can honestly say that each of the designs are amazing.
If you are used to making holes etc.
in knitting patterns I am sure these are something
you could achieve.
The book even says beginners can have a go.

Elizabeth has brought her knowledge together
and put it in a format that is easy to follow
and takes the fright out of
Shetland Lace Shawls.

Elizabeth also gives you all the knowledge
you will need to know so that you can take
the techniques and use them to create your
own designs.
How special would that be to create your own
unique design for yourself or as a present
for someone special.

This is a special book full of amazing designs
and superb instructions.
