How exciting! My first ebook, Mary Schiffmann’s Lacy Knitting, has just been released by Interweave Press. The ebook contains over 20 knitting patterns collected by Mary Schiffmann, co-founder of the Lacy Knitters Guild. Mary collected lace knitting pieces and patterns her whole life and from many sources. She knitted up each pattern and wrote out the instructions. This might involve translating old instructions into modern terminology or creating instructions from scratch for an heirloom doily that someone loaned her. Included in the book are patterns from sources as varied as Mary’s great aunt’s handwritten notebook to patterns she created to express her love of astronomy.
If you are a beginning lace knitter, you can improve your skills by following along with Mary’s 10 session course on learning to knit lace. The course starts out with a simple edging and each subsequent class introduces a more advanced skill. The course outline, all of the patterns and Mary’s teaching notes are included.
