This is a fabulous book, containing 74 patterns ranging from doilies to afghans to wearables and household items. The pattern instructions are clear and easy to follow, the items, especially the doilies, are beautiful and work up quickly and nicely. Some of the wearables are not very practical, but there are a few patterns for shawls that I’d consider making. Lots of filet patterns, which have clear graphs to follow. I love the potholder and other kitchen patterns, and some of the little misc patterns are neat. Pretty much everything in this book is delicate, lacy, and has a vintage flair. Thread is the emphasis, so if you’re a threadie, definintely check this item out. It runs really cheap used on Amazon and Half.com, so I recommend it for anyone’s library.
