Pressestimmen Jan 09 Nancy Bush revisits hallowed creative ground for this beautifully in-depth treatise on the lace masterpieces of her beloved Estonia. She starts with a history section tracing Estonian lace from its origins as a cottage industry into a world-renowned art form. Then a primer on knitting intricate 'Haapsalu Sall' - center pattern frame scalloped edging - with special attention to the bobblelike nupps scattered liberally throughout and also to blocking properly on a frame. Then the patterns: 14 of them each one a marvel several adapted from the influential Estonian magazine Triinu. They're rectangular and triangular short and narrow long and wide; with diamonds that intersect like figure eights peacock tails and regal patterns named for Swedish royalty of yore. Finally a stitch glossary of popular Estonian lace schemes from leaf and twig to lilly of the valley to the hearty 'Greta Garbo.' Lovely. * Yarn Market News * June 09 Estonian lace designs are well known to be among the most beautiful and delicate of all and this book covers the best traditional designs. The projects are all for shawls and scarves but there's also a directory of Estonian lace stitches which you could use for any design of your own. The book also explains the rich history of Estonian lace knitting. * * May 09 This has to be one of the most beautiful books featuring knitted lace that has ever been published. I love it. The first chapter describes the history of the remarkable Estonian lace knitters covering 14 pages. Following this there are 14 lace patterns for scarves and stoles which use some amazingly lovely lace stitches. Estonian lace is unique in that the patterns are not found in English knitted lace but are complex fragile feminine and very up-to-date. There are stunning designs and borders. Also included are hints for designing your own lacy items. There are plenty of superb fine yarns in the shops and on the web and these come in a huge variety of colours and yarn types. They have become very popular indeed since the book 'Victorian Lace for Today' hit the bookshops a couple of years ago. Fine yarn and large needles create beautiful flowing projects which can be made by any knitter with some experience. The photography is excellent and the instructions are given in abundance. These are not written but are given in chart form which many people favour. The more 'difficult' stitches are shown in diagram form and although a challenge are clearly represented. I can find no faults with this book and being a lace knitter myself highly recommend it to anyone wanting something different and challenging. If I had to sum up the book in a few words they would be BEAUTIFUL BOOK - BUY IT AND TRY IT -You will not be disappointed. * Jenny Lewis * Synopsis From Estonian knitting authority Nancy Bush comes this new classic.
